Abstract

India is the sixth largest producer of maize in the world, and contributed about 2 per cent to the global maize production of 855.72 million tonnes (Mt) in 2012-13. During the past 5 years (2007-2011), its production has registered an impressive annual growth (6.4%), the highest among all food crops in India. The maize area in Karnataka has almost doubled during the previous decade and has become the leading producer and exporter of maize in the country. Rajasthan has the second largest maize area (13% of total maize area), but contributes only 9 per cent to the total production in the country. On the other hand, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu are the two new emerging states, where the area under maize crop has increased almost 2.5-times due to the growing maize demand for feed and industrial purposes. in the present study an attempt has been made to study the maize production, harvesting system & Maize trade in India in general and in Karnataka in particular. Data & information collected from published & unpublished sources like various reports, theses, books, journals, & various websites. Information & data were arranged and analysed in tabular & Graph format.

Key Words
