Mango is one of the most consumed fresh fruit in the world, it continues to dominate the Indian fruit basket contributing 34.9 per cent to total fruit area and 20.7 per cent to total fruit production. The necessary time series data were collected for a period of 25 years from 1987-88 to 2014-15.The growth in the area, production and productivity of top ten major mango producing states of India were estimated using the compound annual growth rate function.The results revealed that the area under mango cultivation has registered a statistical non significant positive compound growth rate of 3.78 per cent per annum, while its production registered growth rate of 3.00 per cent during the same period of time. The productivity (-9.6 % pa) of mango in India was registered negative highly significant at 1 % (P<0.01). Itimplies that yield of mangodeclined by 0.96 per cent per annum.The Andhra Pradesh ranksfirst in average area (19.35 %) under mango cultivation and production (25.39 %), the compound annual growth rate, in caseof area (3.36%pa) and production (1.38% pa) is positive and highly significant at 1 % level of significance whereas Uttar Pradesh occupied top position in case of average productivity (10.65 Mt ha.-1) followed by Karnataka and Bihar. The total acreage of mango cultivation and production of India has accelerated annually. The overall productivity of mango is revealed to be decreasing annually.Thus, there is a need to take productivity enhancing measures in mango cultivation like adoption of high density planting techniques, appropriate orchard system, provide the facility of modern infrastructure services, enhanced technical awareness level of growers regarding the cultivation of mango to tackle the natural calamity and disease attack with respect to fruit protection.

Key word: Compound growth rates, Area, Production, Productivity Mean and Variation.
