* The term "arable land" is used somewhat loosely here, as wasteland is sometimes converted to arable use, while there had been conversion of arable land for industrial and urban uses. The present cultivated land is expected to remain relatively constant in the near and distant future, hence may be a proxy for arable land.

Land Resources in India. • About 43 percent of the land area is plain, which provides facilities for agriculture and industry.

Land Use Change. Land-use change is defined as greenhouse gas emissions from human activities which either change the way land is used (e.g., clearing of forests for agricultural use) or has an effect on the amount of biomass in existing biomass stocks (e.g., forests, village trees, woody savannas, etc.

Explain land use pattern in India and why has the land under forest not increased much since. How has technical and economic development led to more consumption of resources. Answer: (i) The use of land is determined by both physical factors such as topography, climate, soil types as well as human factors such as population density.

Zhang et al. () assessed the effects of land use (forest, farm, orchard, and fallow land) and slope gradient (0–2, 3–6, 7–15, 16–25 and > 25%) on soil loss rate in a hilly watershed of southern China with red soil.

Their results indicated that soil loss rate is bound up with slope gradient, and the soil loss rate increases with the Cited by:   In Nigeria, increasing evidence indicates a deteriorating man-land relationship.
