India is a richly resource endowment nation and 65% of people are engaged in agriculture in Karnataka. The proposed study analyzes the pulses production and marketing in Karnataka. Karnataka dry land farming 67%. Pulses are mainly cultivated under dry land conditions price and yields of pulses vary can may significantly affecting profitability to farmers. The proposed study analyses trends and pattern of productivity and yield gap in case of pulses crops. To identify and analyze the Area, Production and Productivity of Pulses in Karnataka. To estimate and analyse the supply responsiveness of farmers cultivating pulses crops. Results from the model can help understand the factors that affect yield, prices, productivity and profitability to farmers. The research model can also help to predict changes in profitability when factors influencing yields change. Farmers can use this model calculate the changes there profitability with precision. Consumers can also use the model to understand the changes in supply and resulting price changes. The proposed research model helps in understanding factors affecting the yield, productivity of pulses and dry land conditions. Flexibilities can be calculated for all the factors that affect yield and supply. This can be of help in estimating and predicting changes in farmer’s profitability under alternative policy regimes. Given the state of distress in agriculture in Karnataka improving profitability from dry land farming is of paramount importance. This result this study highest growing geographical area Gulbarga and lowest Kodagu district. Also with suitable modification to the model, understand changes resulting climate change.
