The present study examines the growth action of land utilization pattern in the Jalna in Maharashtra. Using data from 2002-03 to 2016-17, linear and compound growth rate of land utilization pattern in Jalna District was estimated for each period to study the growth performance. In the District, gross cropped area occupies major portion in total geographical area of the state followed by net sown area and forest area. Despite of this, area under current fallow, other fallow occupies prominent portion in total area. Area under the fallow is increasing. Hence importance is given to prevent converting cropped area to waste land. The study suggests farmers to make use of available resource efficiently to convert cultivable waste land and fallow land into farm land.

Keywords: Growth action, Land utilization pattern gross cropped area, Waste land
