Abstract: The study intends to scrutinize the performance of wheat production in Haryana and India during the period 1966-67 to 2012-13; this time period were divided in five sub periods i.e. P-I (1966-67 to 1975-76), P-II (1976-77 to 1985-86), P-III (1986-87 to 1995-96), P-IV (1996-97 to 2005-06) and P-V (2006-07 to 2012-13). The study is exclusively based on secondary data. The Result of study revealed positive trends in area, production and yield of wheat for both Haryana and India. Similar results were obtained on the triennium basis. The contribution of area and yield in the production of wheat are comparable for both Haryana and India. All the selected three aspects (i.e. area, production and yield) have shown positive growth rates in Haryana while in case of India, positive growth rates were observed for only area and production except in Period- IV (1996-97 to 2005-06). Trend of yield in India was similar to that of Haryana. Similar results are observed for coefficient of variation and stability indices in production and yield of wheat in Haryana as well as India.
