Abstract:

Land utilization pattern differs from one region to other. Land availability, type of land and soil type are the main determinants of crops to be grown. The dynamics of shift among different land-use classes has been studied in the North- Eastern Karnataka region. A significant decline has been observed in the total reported area, which necessitates a proper land-use survey through remote sensing. A declining trend has also been observed in the area under forests. The unfavourable increasing trends in the area put to non-agricultural uses and the growth rate in land put to non-agricultural uses was significantly increased. In contrary, area under permanent pastures and other grazing lands declined in the study districts. The positive growth in net area sown was noticed in Kalaburgi (0.20%) and Koppal (0.56%) districts while negative growth was observed in Ballari (-1.36%), Bidar (-0.70%) and Raichur (-0.56%) districts. Markov chain analysis showed that the area under forest, other uncultivable land excluding fallow land and net sown area were stable during study period. However, net sown area and fallow land were more stable in 1995-96 to 2004-05 compared to 2005-06 to 2014-15.
