Abstract :

An attempt has been made to study the spatio-temparal changes in the cropping pattern of Konkan region. Taking example of Raigad district of Konkan region, where the physical factors are in flounced more on land use than any other factors on the earth. Before three decades, there was no more difference between total cropped area and net sown area, where the district average cropping pattern was marked 100.9% in 1989-90. Effect of meager irrigation facilities, small size of land holding, nature of soil, vagaries of monsoon rain etc. controlled the aerially distribution of cropping intensity. After the establishment of vaidhanik mandal for Konkan region, witnessed several changes in the use of agricultural land. These are technical advances in agriculture, the profitability of different agricultural enterprises, and expansion of irrigation facilities. Though all tahsils are recorded improved position in cropping pattern, except Karjat and Mahad tahsils. The overall result of these changes could be seen in the improved use of the agricultural land and increased yield per hectare, recording agricultural progress, usually referred to as “agricultural efficiency” by agricultural Geographers.
