Export Trends, Fluctuations, Yield.


India is the second largest producer ofonions in the world after China. It enjoys 19% share ofthe global onion production. The annual average production is 12 lakh tones. The study has been undertaken to understand the effect of Area and Yield on Production of Onion and to study export trends of Onion. The production of onion has significantly increased over the past 30 years (1980-2012) but there has been lots of fluctuations specially from 1995 onwards indicating that production ofonion is not steady year overyear but sometimes increases and decreases. Such fluctuations may arise due to dependency of agricultural crops on rainfall and monsoons. Excess rainfall or less rainfall hampers the production of crops among other factors.
