District Hand Book of Statistics-2021

Statistical Activities:

1.Agriculture Statistics:
  Agricultural Statistics covers

  • Rainfall Statistics,
  •  Area Statistics comprising the data on Land Use, Area & Production and
  •  Yield Statistics of various crops produced in the state.

Agricultural year (June to May) is divided in to basically two seasons viz., Kharif (Vanakalam) and Rabi (Yasangi).
Agricultural census is conducted in both seasons Viz., Kharif and Rabi in a year based on the Pahani/Adangal records of revenue department and reconcile the areas with line departments i.e., Agriculture,Horticulture,Irrigation, Groundwater and Sugarcane etc.

Directorate of Economics and Statistics is declared as State Agriculture Statistical Authority.

(a) Rainfall Statistics:
The Director, Directorate of Economics and Statistics is designated by the Government as the Rainfall Registration Authority in the State. The state has a rain gauge in every Mandal covering an area of 250sq.kms. as against the IMD’s requirement of a gauge per 500 sq.kms.

Rainfall Statistics are used for monitoring the seasonal conditions and the progress of Agricultural operations on a continuous basis. These statistics on daily rainfall are collected station-wise by the CPO and the same is submitted to the District Collector and DES.

Telangana State Development Planning Society(TSDPS) collects Rainfall, Wind Speed, Wind Direction, Pressure, Humidity and Temperature through (35) Automatic Weather Stations (AWS) in the District.
In addition, it also measures Global Radiation and Soil Moisture at desired location at every one-hour interval and transmits it in the form of SMS using GSM technology.
The data is being used by stake holders for proper planning and implementation of varied government programs and schemes.
AWS data is also being used by Agriculture Insurance Company of India for implementation of Weather Based Crop Insurance Scheme (WBCIS) for various crops in the districts.
State Disaster Mitigation Society (APSDMS) is recently establishing automatic weather stations in all Mandal. These stations transmit hourly data on six parameters namely rainfall, humidity, temperature, wind velocity, direction and barometric pressure. It is proposed to integrate Revenue Rain gauge and AWS data at Mandal level.
No. of AWS in the District: 35
No. of Rain Guage Stations in the District: 16 (Manual)
Seasonal Conditions:Every Wednesday all MPSOs of the Mandal will prepare a report on seasonal conditions on

(a) Rainfall, (b) Area sown particulars up to the reporting week and (c) Condition of the standing crops.

(b) Area Statistics: –

Timely Reporting of Agricultural Statistics (TRAS):
Data is also collected through the scheme of ‘Timely Reporting of Agricultural Statistics’ (TRAS) using sampling techniques and the forecast report indicates area and production of the important crops. The forecast is made on certain important crops according to a prescribed calendar.
Under TRAS every year 20% of villages will be selected in each Mandal and the same is communicated to the concerned Mandal.In the selected villages cropped area particulars furnished in the Pahanis by the VROs will be reported in the prescribed TRAS cards.
In the scheme (4) TRAS cards consisting of all crops area sown figures of current year and previous year for both the seasons will be collected and submitted to DE&S.

(c) Yield Statistics
General Crop Estimation Surveys (GCES):
The objective of Crop Estimation Surveys is to obtain the estimates of average yield per hectare (productivity) and total production of principal crops, both at District and State levels 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.
The following crops are covered under this survey.

Index of Industrial Production (IIP):
The Index of Industrial Production (IIP) objective is to estimate the contribution of Industrial sector to the Gross State Domestic Product.
To avoid delay in the availability of ASI data the IIP is introduced to collect monthly index of industrial production.It includes the relative change of physical production in the field of Industry during specific period as compared to the previous period.
The IIP is estimated for combined state monthly by collecting data from selected units of Manufacturing, Mining and Quarrying and Electricity.
IIP in the State is being compiled with base year 2004-05 for 22 industrial classifications at 2-digit level under manufacturing sector. In this District, 14 industries are selected in 2018-19.
