Permanent URI for this community

The Andhra Pradesh Agricultural University (APAU) was established on 12th June 1964 at Hyderabad. The University was formally inaugurated on 20th March 1965 by Late Shri. Lal Bahadur Shastri, the then Hon`ble Prime Minister of India. Another significant milestone was the inauguration of the building programme of the university by Late Smt. Indira Gandhi,the then Hon`ble Prime Minister of India on 23rd June 1966. The University was renamed as Acharya N. G. Ranga Agricultural University on 7th November 1996 in honour and memory of an outstanding parliamentarian Acharya Nayukulu Gogineni Ranga, who rendered remarkable selfless service for the cause of farmers and is regarded as an outstanding educationist, kisan leader and freedom fighter. HISTORICAL MILESTONE Acharya N. G. Ranga Agricultural University (ANGRAU) was established under the name of Andhra Pradesh Agricultural University (APAU) on the 12th of June 1964 through the APAU Act 1963. Later, it was renamed as Acharya N. G. Ranga Agricultural University on the 7th of November, 1996 in honour and memory of the noted Parliamentarian and Kisan Leader, Acharya N. G. Ranga. At the verge of completion of Golden Jubilee Year of the ANGRAU, it has given birth to a new State Agricultural University namely Prof. Jayashankar Telangana State Agricultural University with the bifurcation of the state of Andhra Pradesh as per the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Act 2014. The ANGRAU at LAM, Guntur is serving the students and the farmers of 13 districts of new State of Andhra Pradesh with renewed interest and dedication.

    TIME SERIES ANALYSIS OF AREA, PRODUCTION AND PRODUCTIVITY OF MAJOR PULSES IN ANDHRA PRADESH
    (ACHARYA N G RANGA AGRICULTURAL UNIVERSITY, GUNTUR, 2019) BINDUMADHAVI, N; NAFEEZ UMAR, SHAIK
    The present study entitled “Time series analysis of area, production and productivity of major pulses in Andhra Pradesh” has been undertaken to fit different linear, non-linear growth models and Auto Regressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) models for the area, production and productivity of major pulses such as Bengalgram, Redgram, Greengram, Blackgram and Horsegram as well as to provide forecasts up to the year 2022 AD. The study was carried out for the state of Andhra Pradesh using time series data from 1971 to 2017. Different growth models such as linear, logarithmic, quadratic, cubic, power, exponential models and time series models such as ARIMA were applied for the data on area, production and productivity of respective pulses and the best fitted model was chosen on the basis of diagnostic criteria like highest R2 and lowest MSE, RMSE, MAPE and BIC. The best fitted models were used to obtain the future projections upto 2022 AD. In order to study the percentage contribution of area, productivity and their interaction effects towards the growth in the production of pulse crop, decomposition analysis has been carried out. It was observed that the area, production and productivity of Bengalgram showed an increasing trend during the study period. Redgram as well as Blackgram area, production and productivity also showed an increasing trend during the study period. Greengram area and production exhibited a decreasing trend whereas, productivity showed an increasing trend during the study period. Area and production of Horsegram showed a declining trend whereas, productivity showed an increasing trend during the study period. xiii The study revealed that ARIMA (1, 1, 1) model was the best fitted model for area and productivity of Bengalgram, area and production of Redgram as well as production and productivity of Blackgram respectively. Cubic model was the best fitted model for productivity of Redgram, production and productivity of Greengram as well as production and productivity of Horsegram respectively. ARIMA (1, 2, 1) was the best fitted model for Bengalgram production and Blackgram area respectively. ARIMA (2, 2, 1) was the best fitted model for Greengram area and Horsegram area respectively. The future projections of area, production and productivity of Bengalgram, Redgram and Blackgram showed an increasing trend up to the year 2022 AD. Area and production projections of Greengram showed a decreasing trend whereas, productivity forecast showed an increasing trend. Projections of Horsegram area showed an increasing trend whereas, production and productivity seem to be stable in the upcoming years. Overall decomposition analysis revealed that the percentage contribution of area was more dominant in all the crops.
