The growth rate of banana in; area, production and productivity were found to be increasing. The growth rate in area and production of banana was 3.70 and 5.01 per cent respectively. The growth in productivity was found to be non-significant with 2.00 per cent over the study period. The productivity of banana showed negative growth rate with -0.15 per cent in the first period (1994-95 to 2014-15) while positive growth rate of 1.60 per cent was found during the overall study period (1994-95 to 2014-15).The growth rate of area under banana in major banana producing states was estimated highest in Gujrat with 5.70 per cent followed by other banana producing states, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra with the CGR of 4.67, 3.92, 3.13 and 1.99 respectively.
