Abstract: Instability is an inherent characteristic of agriculture everywhere. This study analyses the instability in the agricultural performances in the state of Odisha from 1993/94 to 20010/11. The entire time period is divided into two sub-periods, i.e. early-reform period (1993/94-2001/02) and late-reform period (2002/03- 2010/11). With a trend break, instability in area, yield and production of major crop groups are estimated. It is observed that the stability has increased in area under cultivation for all major crop groups except condiments and spices, however, stability of production and yield has increased across all the crop groups at the state level in the second period. Some diversified results have been observed while examining the instability of area under cultivation across the physiographic zones for major crop groups. Besides the fluctuations in area, the stability in the production and productivity (yield) has increased for all major crop groups across the physiographic zones. The credit of reducing the instability in the second period should go to the plan policy adopted by the state government. However, Odisha’s agriculture has to go a long way to achieve self-sufficiency.
