    This study explains that rapid growth in agricultural production and productivity is very important for an agriculturally predominant state like Madhya Pradesh. The production of total pulses, oilseeds and food grains has increased due to increase in the overall yield. However, the area under the production of food grains has declined in the post-economic reform period compared to that in the pre-economic reform period, but the production has increased due to increase in yield. The area of oil seed production has increased in the post-economic reform period and in the same way production and yield have also increased significantly. The increase in production resulted mainly due to the increase in yield only. So the study suggests that future growth in food grain production would demand a substantial government commitment to the technology-based growth in agriculture. Based on the findings, this study suggests that the government should come forward to supply all inputs in time and in adequate quantities for the rapid growth of agriculture in future.
