Abstract
The present study was planned to check the trend analysis of area and production of millet in Pakistan. The findings of the study are based on millet area and production data during the years (1984-85 to 2011-12). Three models of trend analysis were applied but most appropriate model for trend analysis of the present study was quadratic model. Forecasting was also done up to 2016-17. Forecast values are very close to actual values.
