Abstract:
The intensity of cropping is also an indicator of land use efficiency. In other words, it indicates that how intensively the cultivable land is utilized. It is the ratio of total cropped area to net sown area expressed in term of percentage. It is one of the very important indicators of level of agricultural development. Present study is going to express the dynamics of the spatio-temporal changes in the cropping intensity in Rajasthan during post-liberalization periods. The analysis of cropping pattern has been done with reference to 1990-93 and 2009-12.
The intensity of cropping is also influenced by cropping pattern, agricultural productivity, land use efficiency and methods of cultivation. In 1991-92 intensity of cropping in Rajasthan was 116.8 percent. It increased to 137.4 percent in 2010-13. In 1991-94, a large part of the state including Tonk, Pali, Nagaur districts and western and northern part of the state except Sri Ganganagar had very low intensity of cropping whereas medium intensity of cropping was observed in Alwar, Dausa and southern parts of Rajasthan. During 2010-13, a very high change has been seen in eastern and southeastern parts of the state which is rapidly increase their intensity of cropping.
