The study was conducted based on secondary data collected for the period covered span of 30 years from 1989-90 to 2018-19. The study includes analysis of all nine oilseed crops. The study concluded that more area, production and productivity of oilseeds were contributed by kharif season crops than compared to rabi season in the country. The variation in yield of oilseeds was mostly observed in kharif crops than compared to rabi crops. The sunflower, safflower, nigerseed and castor seed showed more fluctuation in area, whereas in production of all crops showed mild variation except sesamum and in productivity higher instability was noticed in soyabean, safflower and groundnut crops. As per the suggestions are concerned, only improving productivity of oilseeds is a better option rather than area in our country. Therefore research efforts may be concentrated on evolving and popularization of suitable yield increasing technology such as High Yielding Varieties, Biotic and Abiotic stress resistant varieties, instability in production and productivity was minimized by expansion of area under irrigation and large scale promotion of stabilization measures like crop insurance which can enhance the per unit production as well as stabilize the area and yield of oilseed crops.
