Crop Diversification Index

Telangana is the first state in the country to record its crop diversification patterns in the form of an index. 

The crop diversification index has a base value of one, which represents the percentage of total cultivated area devoted to a single crop. 

If the index value is higher, it denotes that the crops are more diversified. 

The present crop diversification index was calculated using the area under 77 different crops grown in the state, which includes all food, non-food, cash crops, and area under floriculture. 

In Telangana, many districts have index values ranging from 0 to 5

The crop diversification index will serve as a baseline for future crop diversification in the state
