Abstract: The paper analyses scientific output of India in the discipline of crop sciences as reflected by the coverage of scientific output in three different databases i.e. SCOPUS, CAB Abstracts and ISA (Indian Science Abstracts) during 2008-2010. The analysis indicates that highest number of papers was published on rice and wheat crop. Agricultural universities and institutions under the aegis of Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) were most productive institutions. Most of the papers were published in Indian journals with low impact factor. Environment and Ecology, Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences and Research on Crops were the most preferred journals used by the Indian scientists. The major research is focused on ‘genetics and plant breeding’ followed by ‘soil, climate and environmental aspects’ and ‘agronomic aspects’. The authorship pattern reveals that co-authored papers accounted for 72% of total output.
