Abstract

A plantation is a large piece of land or a group of commercial crops of perennial nature, cultivated extensively in a tropical or semitropical area. These crops are explicitly planted for extensive commercial sale. It needs employment of labour throughout the year and the products of which are usually consumed after processing. The crops grown include fast-growing trees, cotton, coffee, tea, cocoa, sugar cane, sisal, oil seeds (e.g. oil palms), rubber trees, and various fruits. The large size of plantation sector offers the advantage of economies of scale. It is crucial to maintain adequate nutrition programs to ensure high productivity, reduce losses, pollution and to take advantage of good management practices to replenish soil fertility. Plantation crops like tea, coffee and rubber are high valued commercial crops, which constitute around 15 percent of total agricultural export earnings in India. The sector has a very high export potential along with sufficient domestic supply. Being a highly labour-intensive sector, it plays a major role in the livelihood of thousands of labourers. The aim of this paper is to study the trend in area, production and productivity of plantations crops in India as a whole and in the state of Kerala in particular.
