Parametric model, Sustainability yield index and production.
Food crops like wheat, rice, maize play important roles in solving food and nutritional security problem. In the realm of food crops in the world, wheat (Triticum spp.) occupies the number one position. India is one of the principal wheat producing and consuming countries in the world. Its importance in Indian agriculture is second to rice only. World population particularly the population of developing world is increasing at an alarming rate. To feed these ever increasing human populations remains a challenging task to the planners of the individual countries and also the world bodies. The planners should know the likely population behaviour of the countries under changing scenario. During present study under investigation thus, from the study of area, production and productivity of rice, wheat and maize it is seen that there has been improvement in all the fronts in Madhya Pradesh. Wheat was found more sustainability as compare to rice and wheat.
