DYNAMICS OF LAND USE IN DIFFERENT STATES OF INDIA

The study examines the trends and dynamics of annual shifts among different land use classes in Indian States which may have adverse implica­ tions for agricultural growth and ecological balance. A general declining trend was observed in the area under permanent pastures and grazing lands and barren and unculturable lands. The area under non-agricultural uses, cultivable wastes and fallow showed a positive growth in most of the States. Jntersectoral land budgeting revealed that area sh'fts are occuring from both desirable and undesirable ecology sectors towards agricultural as well as non-agricultural sectors. Further, the study identifies the operation of vicious circle of land use dynamics within agricultural sector.
