Abstract

In the present study nonlinear growth models were applied to estimate the compound annual growth rates of area, production and yield of red gram and green gram in Telangana state for the period from 1979-80 to 2012-13. An attempt was made in this paper to suggest some important nonlinear growth models to overcome the inherent problems of the conventional semilogarithmic
estimation of growth rates. The study revealed that both the Logistic and the Gompertz model gave almost similar results. But in some cases the Logistic model proved to be better fit as compared to the Gompertz model since the calculated mean squared errors were smaller for the Logistic model. The estimated compound annual growth rates revealed that the area, production and yield of arhar has shown an increasing trend over the study period but there was a decreasing trend for moong in Telangana state
