LAND RESOURCES AND AGRICULTUE LAND 

USE CATEGORIES
1. Forests
2. Land put to non agricultural use
3. Barren and waste land
4. Area under permanent pastures
5. Area under miscellaneous tree crops
6. Culturalble waste land
7. Current fallow land
8. Fallow other than current fallow
9. NET SOWN AREA

LANDUSE CHANGES IN INDIA THREE 

TYPES OF CHANGES
I. Size of economy: grow over time , change in income level, marginal lands will become useful
II. Composition of the economy: the secondary and tertiary grew much faster than primary sector. Land from Ag. Use to non Ag use such as built up area
III. The contribution of agricultural activities reduces over time
The share of Ag. Is declined. No. of people fed by Agri. is increasing

INCREASE INTHREE CATEGORIES
1. FOREST.

2. AREA UNDER NONAGRICULTURAL USE

3. CURRENT FALLOW LAND

2. FOUR AREAS DECLINED
1. Barren and waste land
2. Cultivable wasteland
3. Area under pastures& tree crops
4. Net sown area

COMMON PROPERTY RESOURCES
1. PRIVATE

2 .COMMONPROPERTY
I. THE CPTS ARE USED BY COMMON PURPOSE / SOCIETY OWNED BY STATE
II. PROVIDE FODDER FOR LIVE STOCK FUEL FOR THE HOUSE HOLDS
III. PRODUCE MINOR FOREST PRODUCTS SUCH AS FRUITS, NUTS, FIBRE, MEDICINAL PLANTS
IV EVERY MEMBER HAS RIGHT TO ACCESS

AGRICULTURAL LAND USE IN INDIA
1. Contribution of land in agricultural use is more important
2. Lack of access to land leads to poverty
3. Productivity depends on quality of land
4. Land ownership has social value in rural areas

TOTAL CULTIVABLE LAND IS = NETWOWN AREA+FALLOW LAND

ULTURABLE WASTE LAND 

1.since there is no extra land available only the high yielding varieties can increase the productivity

2.number of times the land can be increased by providing Irrigation Crop intensity can be raised

CROPPING SEASONS

Chapter Notes - Land Resources And Agriculture Land, Class 12, Geography | EduRev Notes

TYPES OF FARMING 

BASED ON MOISTURE FOR THE CROPS 

IRRIGATED FARMING

1.it is protective/ productive of crops,

2.due to moisture deficiency irrigation is essential

3. Supplementary to the rainfall

4.to increase cultivable area

5.to achieve high productivity

RAIN FED FARMING
1. Divided in to two types a. Dry land farming b wet land farming
2. Dry land farming located in the area of less than75 cm rain fall
3. drought resistant crops are grown
4. Millets, maize fodder crops
5. practice rainwater harvesting

WETLAND FARMING
1. Found in areas of high rainfall zones
2. Water intensive crops such as rice, sugarcane, jute are grown
