Explanation:

1. Statement 1 is correct: Black gram, also known as urad dal, is a pulse crop that can be cultivated during both Kharif (monsoon) and Rabi (winter) seasons in India. It offers flexibility to farmers in terms of cropping patterns and seasonal suitability.

2. Statement 2 is incorrect: Green gram, also known as mung bean, is an important pulse crop in India, but it does not account for nearly half of the pulse production. Other pulses like chickpea (gram), pigeon pea (arhar), and lentils also contribute significantly to the overall pulse production.

3. Statement 3 is incorrect: The production of Kharif pulses and Rabi pulses in India has shown variations over the last three decades, but there is no generalized trend of increased Kharif pulse production and decreased Rabi pulse production. It depends on multiple factors such as government policies, market demand, weather conditions, and farming practices.
