ABSTRACT:
After the dawn of Green Revolution India became self sufficient in producing food grains and also increased its productivity; but at present the Country is facing internal food security issues. Regarding these facts the aim of the present paper is to geographically analyze the present food security conditions of Chhattisgarh state. In the present study for the determination of food security firstly the consumption unit for each district is calculated and then for the second step the food availability in monetary value is derived. In the third and final stage the per capita per hectare net food availability in monetary value is determined and based on that the state is categorized into food security zones. The food security zones are classified through the Quartile method, thus four zones of secure, moderately secure, insecure and very insecure food security are obtained.
