Abstract:

The Telugu Ganga Irrigation Project is in drought prone areas of Rayalaseema region comprising of Chittoor, Kadapa, Kurnool and uplands of Nellore in Andhra Pradesh. Assessed the changes in the area of different crops grown in kharif, rabi and the total area of crops in the entire Telugu Ganga Project (TGP) command in Andhra Pradesh in South India using Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information System (GIS) techniques. The changes in the crop area (ha) and percentage change in the area have been assessed in kharif and rabi seasons of 1997 and 2018 and also when pooled over the two seasons in the entire TGP command comprising of four districts of Chittoor, Nellore, Kurnool and Kadapa. We have also observed significant changes in the shifts in the early, medium and late sown area of the most pre-dominant paddy crop during the study period. The paddy area has significantly increased from 1997 to 2018 based on our research study. On the whole, there was a significant increase in the area of paddy, apart from groundnut, sugarcane and other crops grown indifferent mandals in the four districts located under the TGP command. The results based on our research study are useful to the Government for efficient crop planning in different districts of Andhra Pradesh.
