Abstract

Reasons like social, economic, and natural make farmers to keep the land uncultivated. Study highlights not a single but combination of reasons in different regions. In Khatijapura, the scarcity of water and labor are important reasons for not cultivating during Kharif, while the traditional practice also appears to be the reason. In Daliparru, the intention to convert the land to non-agriculture and migration to urban area is the major reason than shortage of water for cultivation. In Jarasingha, shortage of water only appears to be the major reason for leaving the land vacant.
