Abstract: Agriculture has been the backbone of the Indian economy and it will continue to remain so for a long time. It has to support almost 17 per cent of world population from 2.3 per cent world geographical area and 4.2 per cent of world’s water resources. Agriculture in India has witnessed an impressive growth trajectory, taking the country from a food deficit one during the 1960s to a marginally food surplus one. Indian agriculture has registered impressive growth over last few decades. The food grain production has increased from 51 million tones in 1950-51 to 310.74 million tones during 2020-21 highest ever since independence. India is the world's largest producer of milk, pulses and jute, and ranks as the second largest producer of rice, wheat, sugarcane, groundnut, vegetables, fruit and cotton. It is also one of the leading producers of spices, fish, poultry, livestock and plantation crops. The present study is based on secondary data for the 70 years. The study examines growth rates of area, production and yield of Chickpea (Gram) in India and as well as major Gram growing states. In order to examine the trend in area, production and yield, the statistical methods have been used.
