Chhatarpur District – Introduction
The District Chhatarpur was named after the great warrior of the region Maharaj Chhatrasal. Before Indian Independence, present-day Chhatarpur district consisted of a number of princely states, including Bijawar, Chhatarpur, Gaurihar, Alipura, and Lugasi, along with most of Charkhari and portions of Panna and Ajaygarh. After independence, the rulers of the states of acceded to the Government of India, and the district became part of the new state of Vindhya Pradesh. Vindhya Pradesh was merged into Madhya Pradesh on November 1, 1956. The District is situated at North East border of Madhya Pradesh. This District is spread over an Area of 8687Square Kms. For Administrative convenience, Chhatarpur District has been divided into 7 Tehsils, 8 Development Blocks and 558 Gram Panchayats. Rajnagar is one of the tehsil and Nagar Parishad of the district

Agriculture Trade

The region falls in the Jwar-Wheat producing areas of Madhya Pradesh. Apart form wheat, the other major crops grow in the area are rice, jwar, maize, bajar, kodo, kutki, gram , tuar, mung, urad, soyabean, alsi, til, mungfali, jute and vegetables. Soyabean is also a major crop in the area which has attracted farmers towards it due to its cash value in the market. But with the net area under soyabean growing, the cultivation and productivity of other pulses and oilseeds is getting badly affected day by day. Being the tehsil headquarter, there is a mandi established by Madhya Pradesh Rajya Krushi Vitaran Board, Bhopal. Before the mandi was in a rented house but in 2005 it was shifted to its own premises in ward no.2 with an area of 3 Ha of land. The mandi is mainly famous for til crop. People from outside the town are also coming to this mandi for their business. The mandi in Rajnagare is of grade “D” which is established under the Madhya Pradesh krishi Upaj Mandi Adhiniyam 1972 and came into regulation since 1975. This mandi serves the whole Rajnagar block of Chhatarpur district. The data regarding the trade of all type of agriculture produce has been collected and analyzed. It is found that the agriculture trade is showing an upward growth trend. When we observed the production trend of the mandi at Rajnagar, it is seen that the quantity of agriculture products arrived in the mandi in last year (upto October month) is the highest compared to the last 6 years. Therefore , It is clear that the agriculture Mandi in the town has been playing the role of regional trade of agriculture produce in its vicinity.
