    The Major Land Uses (MLU) series is the longest running, most comprehensive accounting of all major uses of public and private land in the United States. The MLU series contains acreage estimates of major uses for the U.S., regions, and States, beginning in and published about every 5 years since (through ). The annual cropland summary table has been consistently . Traditional land tenures and land use systems in the design of agricultural projects (English) Abstract. This paper provides agricultural project designers with an analytical basis and rationale for examining traditional land tenure and land use systems, and suggests how to make operational use of such information for key project by: 8.

The spatial patterns of agricultural land use have been continuously changing in time as a response to variations in proximate and underlying factors operating across regions at multiple scales (Lambin et al., , Geist et al., ).Technological developments have played an important role by increasing yields, reducing costs, enabling transportation of perishable Cited by:

    The U.S. Geological Survey Land Cover Trends Project is releasing a – time-series land-use/land-cover dataset for the conterminous United States. The dataset contains 5 dates of land-use/land-cover data for 2, sample blocks randomly selected within 84 . AGRICULTURAL LAND USE The net sown area, current fallows and land under tree crops and groves are included in agricultural land use. The agricultural land in India is little more than 50 per cent of the total geographical area in the country. This is the highest share of land in any country in the world.

Globalisation and Agricultural Landscapes: Change Patterns and Policy trends in Developed Countries (Cambridge Studies in Format: Hardcover. Statistics on agricultural land use are crucial for identifying past and current trends in agriculture and inform planning and policies towards the design and implementation of more sustainable agricultural systems.

Urban land-use patterns are also related to accessibility and land rents. In agricultural regions, the crop that produces the highest return at a location is the crop that farmers will choose to grow there.

This book is timely in light of the recent and ongoing growth recovery across the continent. The good news is that agricultural productivity in Africa increased at a moderate rate between andalthough there are variations in the rate of growth in land, labor, and total factor productivities depending on country and region.

We analyzed land-use patterns in each of the three cities by examining the mixture of urban and agricultural land use. The Clark and Newling models showed that the three cities were at different stages of by: Agricultural and rural non-farm growth.

Global patterns and trends in the availability of food "Global food security has generally improved over the past decade, in line with record agricultural production and lower food prices. But recent macroeconomic, socio-economic and political trends suggest that continued progress is not a foregone conclusion.

In the chart here we have plotted trends of the average arable land use per person across the world’s regions. Overall we see that the arable land use per capita has declined across all regions since Per capita land use is highest in North America– more than double the land use of any other region.

While land-use change can be bidirectional for some uses—such as forestry, grassland, and cropland—conversions to an urban use are typically irreversible. As part of the Major Land Uses program, ERS analyzes trends in all of these uses and examines factors driving broad land-use patterns and trends.

LAND USE PATTERNS AND CHANGES THEREIN Land use means utilization of land in a particular area. Land use pattern includes types of land and how much land is being utilized under different uses.

Land is basic resource of human society and land use is the surface utilization of all developed and vacant land on specific point at a given time and Size: 1MB.

"Swidden" or "slash-and-burn" agriculture is a form of subsistence farming practiced all over the world, although it is most widely found in tropical regions such as Amazonia. One of the oldest forms of agriculture, swidden involves clearing the forestation and growth in a desired field with axes, then burning the stumps to eliminate obstructions and enhance the soil.

Agricultural ecosystems are interlinked with rural areas where more than 3 billion people live, almost half of the world's population.

Roughly billion of these rural people derive their livelihoods from agriculture. Thus, population and land‐use trends are considered to be the main driving forces for by: 7. NASS publications cover a wide range of subjects, from traditional crops, such as corn and wheat, to specialties, such as mushrooms and flowers; from calves born to hogs slaughtered; from agricultural prices to land in farms.

This chapter gives an overview of trends in land-use changes over the years. for changing land-use pattern in the which results in acquisition of more land area under non-agricultural useAuthor: Geetika Rathee.

Agricultural Productivity in Africa: Trends, Patterns, and Determinants presents updated and new analyses of land, labor, and total productivity trends in African agriculture. It brings together analyses of a unique mix of data sources and evaluations of public policies and development projects to recommend ways to increase agricultural.

This caveat is even more relevant when considering the global pattern. The decline of agricultural land in much of the world (e.g., New Zealand, Mongolia, and Poland) hides significant agricultural expansion elsewhere.

global analysis; land use; historical trends; decomposition analysis; Throughout the world, agriculture provides human society with food.

Since the emergence of large-scale agriculture, this crucial activity has been responsible for the largest environmental impacts of humans on natural systems: presently, the largest shares of human land and freshwater use Cited by: agricultural land required for food.

This paper focuses on the fourth factor, assessing the influence of food consump-tion patterns on the use of agricultural land. The production offood requires vast amounts of land. Of the global soil surface, 31% is suitable for growing crops, while an additional 33% is suitable for grassland (Penning.Worldwide land-use conversion to urban development and the expansion of agriculture are the current main factors in the destruction of natural environments with .
