Abstract


The studies related to agriculture become more pertinent for those areas, where agriculture contributes more than 80 percent of net income, either through its direct cultivation or through its allied occupations. The aim of present study is to assess the cropping pattern, crop combination, and crop ranking in the Somb river basin using geospatial techniques and secondary data. Here, agriculture is single primary occupation and the basic source of economy. As well as more than 50 percent of total workers are engaged in agriculture and smallholders farmers, who grow crops using low intensity practices of land. Hence, a scientific and systematic study is highly required to assessing and mapping the cropping pattern in the watershed.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google Scholar, Google Search and the Microsoft Academic Search. If ‘A’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘B’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed publications during 2016 then, journal impact factor = A/B.
