Spatio-temporal analysis of Aonla (Indian Gooseberry) cultivation in Pratapgarh district, Uttar Pradesh
Keywords:aonla cluster, fruit belt, production, area and yield
The study highlights the geospatial trends, patterns and distribution of Aonla cultivation in Pratapgarh district over the last decade (2007-08 to 2017-18) and identifies factors and constraints that affect its growth. The paper also explains the concentration and distribution pattern of Aonla cultivation due to its important role in trend analysis. Simple statistics are such as Compound Annual Growth Rates (CAGR), Annual Growth Rates (AGR) and Average Annual Growth Rates (AAGR) are lculated for the area, production and yield. Yield plays an important roleor regular ups and downs in production while the descended area is responsible for the rapid decline in production during 2007-08 to 2012-13. Aonla cluster and Fruit belt initiatives emerged as catalysts for positive growth. Aonla concentration and distribution are shown by using Google Earth Pro. MS Excel and Arc GIS software are used for temporal and spatial analysis.
