General introduction of the commodities
The user can view the introduction of any of the commodity.
Production Data - World
The application contains the information about the major crop producer of the world. The current snapshot displays the major producers for the crop Mango for the year 2006. It displays area coverage, production in thousand tons, and productivity in tons/ha, percentages share of the world production.
Major producing states
Further details, specific to the variety grown and major area of coverage can be displayed. The database displays a view of top five states with the crops grown there in the order of production per year.
For e.g. the following table displays the production and productivity of Mango in India in the year 2005-06
