Agricultural Density In Sangli District : A Spatial Interpretation

Abstract :

The simple man-land ratio (arithmetic density) only expresses the pressure of population on the unit of the total land. It is not a satisfactory way of depicting the real density or the pressure of population on the resource base and is thus unrealistic and even misleading. For this, agricultural density and physiological density are to be taken into account. Agricultural density provides comparison between agricultural population and cultivated area. It is a better approach for the analysis of land- use in agricultural countries like India, where heavy reliance is placed on farming. Therefore, agricultural density (total agricultural population / total cultivated area) cannot be used reliably for scientific planning of land use. The cultivated area takes no notice of the area sown more than once, but it does include fallow land. It does not consider the potential agricultural productivity of the soils.
