Abstract:
The present paper analyses the growth and instability of vegetable crops in North Eastern region (NER). Different variety of vegetables are grown in NER, where the climatic condition provide opportunities for the grower to grow a diversify species of vegetables. Exponential growth equation is used to analyse the growth performance and coefficient of variation and Cuddy- Della Velle Instability index is used to measure instability. The study found that except Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland, all the NE state reveals positive and significant growth rate and low instability.
