Abstract :

Cropping intensity means the ratio of Net Area Sown to the Gross Cropped Area. There are only two ways to satisfy the increasing food and other agricultural demands of country's rising population; either expanding the net area under cultivation or intensify cropping over the existing area. The net sown area of the country has risen by about 20 % since independence and has reached a point where it is not possible to make any appreciable increase. Thus; raising the cropping intensity is the only viable option left. Thus, higher cropping intensity means that a higher portion of the net area is being cropped more than once during one agriculture year. During triennium of 1991-93, the index of intensity of cropping for the study area as a whole is 107.65 per cent. Shirpur tahsil has the highest cropping intensity of 15.46 per cent, followed by Akkalkuwa 110.09 per cent and Taloda tahsil 110.39 per cent. During 2001–03, index of cropping intensity were 104.27 per cent.
