Area Statistics- Advance Estimates:

  • Generally, crop-wise area sown particulars are available only after conducting of Agricultural Census in every season. But it is too late to estimate crop-wise production.
  • This estimation should be well in advance prior to the agricultural Census, to assess whether the estimated production is sufficient to cater the needs of stake-holders.
  • Further, it is also required for the purpose of Planning and to take policy decisions to regulate market fluctuations, public distribution, EXIM (Export and Import) policies MSP etc., and to take major policy decisions during the Agriculture Season ( prior to the completion of Agriculture Census) Vanakalam and Yasangi, data on Agriculture production is essential and as such Government of India, Ministry of Agriculture introduced a system of preparing “ Advance Estimates” in the year 1997-98 and being in implementation for estimation of production, important parameters required are:

            1) Area under different crops up to the cutoff date for the season.

            2) Average yield/ yield rate per Acre for each crop.

           3) Estimation of production using statistical tools.


  • The area sown particulars collected by the Agricultural Extension Officer at village level will be aggregated at Mandal, District and at State levels.
  • The yield rate for each crops will be worked out based on previous year Crops Cutting Experiment results and existing seasonal conditions and thereby basically four periodical advance estimates are prepared during an Agricultural year and they are as follows.

  2. To analyze the various factors influencing industries in the State.

  • Every Year list of Factories selected under ASI will be communicated to the District by the Director, Directorate of Economics and Statistics.
  • In turn the Mandal Planning and Statistical Officer has to collect the information duly visiting the selected Industry.

Prices Statistics:

  • Price statistics play a very significant role in the economy of the state as well as country.
  • Price is termed as an economic ‘Barometer’ of real purchasing power of the community.
  • The price stability is considered by the Nations the World over as a crucial pre-condition for sustained growth in economy.

The data on farm harvest prices are being viewed as an integral part of agricultural statistics and hence they need to be collected through the same agency employed for the collection of area and yield statistics.

These agricultural commodity prices are mainly used in compilation of GSDP/GDDP, for arriving at the gross value of output of each commodity by multiplying the quantity of production with the respective Farm Harvest Price. As such, these Prices are used to convert the mass production into monitory terms or value terms.

Coverage of Crops: The coverage of Farm Harvest Prices is extended to selected crops in the Mandals based on Crop Area Sown during the last (05) years. The Mandal Planning and Statistical Officer of the selected Mandal will collect the Farm Harvest Prices for ( 06 ) and (08) weeks in peak harvest period and the season wise prices data will be uploaded through  .

Crop Estimation Survey:

The objective of Crop Estimation Survey is to obtain the estimates of average yield per Acre  (productivity) and total production of principal crops, both at District and State level by conducting crop cutting experiments.  The scheme is being implemented from 1950-51 onwards in the State.

A crop cutting experiment for any specified crop involves marking of experimental plot of specified size in the selected field, harvesting, threshing and weighing of the produce obtained from it. In a specified number of cases, the produce so obtained will be stored and dried for a further period in order to determine the weight of the dried produce.

Vanakalam –Yasangi


The details of selection and experimental results are collected in three different forms which are detailed below:

Form – I :- This contains information on selection of survey numbers, name of the crop, condition of the crop sown, source of irrigation, expected harvest date, particulars of farmer and estimated yield particulars etc.,

Form – II :- This gives information on plot yields, inputs, irrigation facility etc.

Form –III :- This provides information on driage yield production experimental results.

NON CC EXPERIMENTS:- Yield of crops is plays pivotal role in contribution made to the GSDP of the State. Yield details for the crops for which CC Experiments were not conducting will be selected based on the Area Sown. The Mandal Planning & Statistical Officer of the selected Mandal will collect information as per the statistical method prescribed by the Department Details of Crops selected during Yasangi 2020-21 is Sweet Potato.


As per the directions of the Govt. of India and the Director, Directorate of Economics and Statistics, the Planning Department will conduct following surveys in every ( 5 ) years.
