The present study has examined state-level maize scenario in India. The results showed that the overall growth of maize production in Gujarat due to yield effect or technological intervention i.e., 175.93% was the highest among the states, while it was lowest in West Bengal i.e., 16.43%. The area under maize is substantially increased, and the area effect contributes about 154.12% to the production of maize. In India, the contribution of the yield effect or technological intervention was 61.28%, while the area effect contribution was only 29.12%. The study has suggested that for comprehensive policy mechanism support of enhanced insurance coverage, better investment in agricultural research and education, and modern technology development need to be extended to the maize producer.
