Haryana is a small state having 4.4 million hectares of land only, yet it has become pioneer in production of food crops in the country. The time series data collected from the secondary sources of information from 1966-67 to 2015-16 showed a significant increase in total cropped area, irrigated area and cropping intensity. The production of major crops of wheat, rice, sugarcane, cotton and oilseeds and productivity of food crops of wheat and rice increased progressively due to adoption of high-tech agricultural practices but the productivity of wheat and rice decreased in later years due to change in agricultural practices including adoption of organic farming. The state government has taken several initiatives to protect and better management of resources for the sustainability of production and productivity of major crops.
