A PROPOSED PATTERN OF "LAND CAPABILITY CLASSIFICATION" SYSTEM

A.C. Pandey and N.N. Sirothia

Abstract

In this paper a pattern have been proposed for land classification determination as an alternate to the existing Land Use Capability Classification in India. In the proposed methodology, for determination of land class, the procedure have been adopted for award of numerical marks as a weightage to the various soil, land characteristics and to the natural hazards and the sum of this weigtage determines the class obtained by that land and the land is classified accordingly. One basic concept adopted in this classification is that all those lands which are "economical to cultivate are suitable for cultivation" irrespective of its land slope or other natural hazards.
