Demands of Changes in Cropping Pattern: A Case Study of Akole Tahasil (M.S; India)
Abstract: A change in the agricultural land use implies a change in the proportion of area under different crops at two different times. As such the amount of area involved in change for Akole tahasil is calculated for individual crops and the crops of leading increases and decreased are marked. The intensity of land utilization is reflected in number of crops raised during the year. Among the various determinants of agriculture; it is assumed that irrigation positively affects the intensity of cropping. The study area has recorded in 20 years parts of the eastern sides significant increase in residential and agricultural area due to which gained more land from water bodies; barren and vacant lands. It is observed from the study area; there is a grater variation in the changes land use and cropping pattern; during the study period i. e.1990-91 to 2010-11. About 80 % population depends directly upon land middle and eastern part of the Akole tahasil; state of Maharashtra; India; is mainly use of the agricultural land and converted into residential and other uses for the growth and development of the facilities. Farmers have adopt modern technology i. e. fruits and vegetables drip irrigation facility; variety seeds material; increasing use by composting biomass; improved planting technology and micro irrigation systems; crop loans; good network of transports and markets; agricultural advisory centers and also available facilities in the study area. Therefore; recently cropping pattern is change and day by day positive increased.
