    This study, we have analyzes the growth and spatial pattern to find out the determinants of wheat productivity in Haryana. The Composite Standard Score (CSS) indicates that Kaithal, Karnal, Jind, Hisar, Fatehabad and Sirsa districts have secured top positions, while Gurgaon, Rewari and Mehandergarh have ended up in the last positions in the state in wheat crop intensity level. Out of these 11 variables, only one variable has been found to be significantly associated (negative) with wheat productivity (i.e., irrigation intensity). So, the authors suggest that the Government of Haryana should give importance to foresting and climate education to increase rainfall, providing low water absorbable seeds to save the water, appropriate utilization of water, providing sufficient finance as well as tractors at low, affordable cost, minimum paper work and minimum security for enhancing wheat productivity. It is the moral responsibility of North-Western (N-W) states of India in general and Haryana in particular to ensure increased wheat productivity to achieve the goal of a hunger-free India.
