About Division : Land Use Planning

             The Bureau initially had established five research divisions in 1980 at the headquarters, Nagpur namely Soil Correlation & Classification, Pedology, Remote Sensing & Aerial Photo Interpretation, Cartography, and Land Use Planning. In 1992 as per the recommendations of Quinquennial Review Team (QRT) these five divisions were reorganized into three divisions viz. Soil Resource Studies, Remote Sensing Applications, and Land Use Planning. The objective of this division is to undertake interdisciplinary research in land evaluation for rationalizing land use. Subsequently, the division diversified its activities into various issues of contemporary interest and foresign

Achievements (Projects completed with a very brief note) Institute Projects
  • Comparison of the crop simulation model for soybean in black soils of Nagpur District, Maharashtra
Infocrop model proved to be fairly successful in simulating growth and yield of soybean.
  • The socio-economic analysis and soil characterization were carried out for rainfed and irrigated cotton-based production systems.
Under the rainfed production system, 10 target districts and 11 non-target districts covering 15 AESRs and 6 States were selected. From 10 target districts, 31 tehsils and 135 watershed/villages were covering 1410 farmers were selected for socio-economic analysis. Among the selected farms, cotton is grown in extremely shallow-to-shallow soils (14 per cent), moderately deep (21 per cent) and deep to very deep soils (65 per cent). Majority of the cotton soils are low in nitrogen (91.4%), phosphorus (724.4%) and zinc (91.9%).
  • Validation of growing period concept in a catena of Nagpur District
FAO based LGP computation method shows good agreement with that of estimated under field condition with a variation of +10 days in shallow and 20-30 days in deep soil depending on the rainfall on its distribution pattern. LGP of shallow (<50 cm) Black soils (Lithic Haplustept) is about 160 days under normal conditions in Nagpur. In the aberrant rainfall year, a reduction of LGP of 22 per cent from the normal value, crop failure in very shallow soils (<25 cm depth) is generally observed for cotton in black soils. LGP and rainfall of Nagpur follow curvilinear relationship both in the FAO method as well as field estimation under varying crop and rainfall conditions, (LGP = 0.0011X2+2.3742X-1057.7, R2=0.6084, whereas in most of the places of India (Eco-sub-region) follow exponential relationship. LGP = A(1-e-bx). X = Total rainfall a and b are constant.
  • Evaluation of shallow shrink-swell soils for different cropping systems in a dry sub-humid ecosystem (AESR 10.2)
Evaluation of shallow shrink-swell soil was done in Nagpur district, Maharashtra, through experimentation. The intercropping system, cotton + black gram had the highest cotton yield equivalent and is economical. The cowpea when grown as a vegetable as intercrop in cotton, could fetch sustained income for the farmers. The soybean + pigeon pea was found to be the best combination economically followed by soybean + sorghum in shallow soils. Soil-based crop planning and land use options identified in Waranga village, Nagpur. The land-use option may act as a tool for economic development in different situations. Soils have a different LGP. Planning of different crops and crop combinations as per LGP would be more useful for higher profitability. Soil-based crop planning proved to be a better option to change the land use as per different alternatives within the framework of soil suitability to generate the employment/income.
  • Studies on soil-plant health as affected by city waste concerning elemental toxicity
In peri-urban Nagpur city, the physical and chemical properties of Nag river water (sewage effluent) irrigated soils had a pH of 8.3 to 8.5, EC 0.81, and 1.10 dSm-1, bicarbonates -3.4 to 4.6 meqL-1 and sulphate -0.6 to 0.8 meqL-1. Despite the low content of heavy metals in sewage effluent, it was observed that the soils irrigated with sewage water received a considerable amount of heavy metals.
  • Estimating saturated hydraulic conductivity, bulk density, and other physical properties of the Vertisols and Vertic integrades from published search and soil survey data.
Regional Pedotransfer functions (PTF) were calibrated that could be used to estimate soil water retention using varied levels of input information 1) Textural data (data on the sand, silt, and clay fraction-SSC) 2) Level 1+bulk density data (SSCBD) 3) Level 2+ organic matter (SSCBDOM) and 4) Level 3 +organic matter (SSCOM). Neural regression and K-NN techniques of PTF development were evaluated. Superior ability of k-NN PTFs in predicting FC and PWP of Vertisols of India was noted. PTFs to predict saturated hydraulic conductivity were also calibrated but with relatively less accuracy. The study also demonstrated that native PTFs to predict bulk density shrink-swell soils could be calibrated successfully provided the correct choice of input variables is made.
  • Impact of land utilization types on microbial biomass in some Vertisols of Nagpur district, Maharashtra
Microbial biomass carbon has been found to range from 110 to 496 µgg-1 soil in black soils under different land use and management practices. Land use types and management practices have been found to have a considerable impact on Soil Microbial Biomass. In organic farming systems, SMBC ranges from 149-404 µgg-1 soil depending on the age of organic farming. Considerable seasonal variation in microbial biomass carbon has been observed. In general, SMBC was found to remain high during the post-monsoon period through winter till late February and declines gradually during summer presumably due to higher temperature and moisture stress. Recommended management practices help to maintain an elevated level of SMBC. Nitrogen mineralization was found to have a direct bearing on SMBC.
  • Socio-economic evaluation of the sustainability of identified land-use systems of Panubali and Kanyadol village of Nagpur District
Intercropping with soybean, chilly, leafy vegetable(s), gram and wheat (during the first three years) in orange orchards in fine, Vertic Haplustepts, fine loamy Haplusterts, and coarse loamy Typic Haplustepts gave additional income of Rs. 3000 to 4000 ha-1 per annum. Adoption of improved varieties and scientific crop management practices increased, the yields of sorghum, soybean, cotton, and chickpea by 189, 71, 68, and 41 per cent respectively in different swell-shrink soils. On shallow shrink-swell soils, the soybean-based cropping system gave a higher net return of Rs. 6042/ ha than the cotton-based system. Among the intercrops, soybean + pigeon pea had the highest yield equivalent of 978 kg/ha and net return of Rs. 8130/ h.
  • Evaluation of soil properties influencing productivity potential of Citrus reticulata blanco (Nagpur mandarin) of Nagpur district
The fuzzy logic-based method identified the major soil limitations to Nagpur mandarin production. The method worked as a successful evaluation tool in classifying the soils for the fruit crop. Land suitability evaluation for mulberry cultivation for sericulture in black soils of Vidarbha.
  • Land use studies at the village level
Sukli village of Nagpur district was adopted under Lab to Land programme for soil-based agro-technology transfer. Based on soil suitability and several demonstrations on different crops/cropping systems, it was observed that the average yield of the major crops showed an increasing trend after the implementation of technology. Deep soils with high clay contents (Typic Haplustepts) produced more foliage, cocoons, leaf protein, and generated higher economic returns. The higher availability of N and P has a positive effect on leaf protein content.
  • Refinement of agro-ecological region and sub-regions based on recent soils and climatic database for resource planning and development.
  • Development of a soil water balance model for shrink-swell soils of Central India.
  • Testing of models for soil physical properties and evaluation of soils.
  • Estimating Saturated Hydraulic Conductivity and Bulk Density of the Vertisols and Vertic Intergrades from Published Research & Soil Survey Data.
Externally funded projects (National) National Agricultural Technology Project (NATP).
  • Land use planning for the management of agricultural resources (MM-28/III) (As the Main Lead Centre)
This project developed strategies and options for rational and scientific land use planning at the micro-watershed level. The project was implemented in 56 operational units covering an area of 21,258 ha spread over 5 agro-ecosystems, namely, Rainfed, Irrigated, Arid, Hill & Mountain and Coastal cutting across 38 AESRs. Land use options were identified for the operational units of each agro-ecosystem based on the integration of biophysical land socio-economic information.
  • Socio-economic analysis and characterisation of the cotton-based system (Irrigated Agro-ecosystem) (PSR-24) (As a Co-operative Centre)
Under the irrigated production system, 20 villages were selected from six districts of Haryana, Punjab, and Rajasthan. It was found that the majority of area (52.1 per cent) recorded high cotton lint yield (1.1-1.2 t/ha) when medium N (63-101 kg N/ha) was applied. Based on the deviation between STCR recommended dose and current levels of N application it was inferred that current yield levels of cotton could be realized through the application of a lower amount of N fertilizers.
  • Agro-economic characterization and constraint analysis of rainfed based cotton production systems in relation to soil, rainfall, and socio-economic factors. (RCPS-1) (As the Lead Centre)
Under the rainfed production system, 10 target districts and 11 non-target districts covering 15 AESRs and 6 States were selected. From 10 target districts, 31 tehsils and 135 watershed/villages were covering 1410farmers were selected for socio-economic analysis. Among the selected farms, cotton is grown in extremely shallow to shallow soils (14 per cent), moderately deep (21 per cent), and deep to very deep soils (65 per cent). The majority of the cotton soils are low in nitrogen (91.4%), phosphorus (724.4%), and zinc (91.9%). Technology Mission on Cotton [TMC(GOI) funded]
  • Methodology for the prediction of regional level cotton yield by integrating remote sensing, GIS and crop models
INFOCROP-cotton, a simulation model (adapted from INFOCROP generic model) was developed to simulate the effect of diverse weather, soil, and management on growth, development, yield, and water balance in cotton. It was calibrated and validated using independent data sets from multi-location (Nagpur, Coimbatore, Hisar, Surat, and Dharwar) trials. It was also validated using data from the farmers’ field. In a catenary sequence covering Inceptisols, Vertisols of Nagpur district (Maharashtra). The model satisfactorily predicts dry matter production, leaf area, phenology, water balance, and yield under diverse irrigated and rainfed conditions. Later, a methodology was developed integrating remote sensing data (LISS III) (spatial distribution of cotton), GIS (district soil map and rainfall polygons), and INFOCROP-cotton model to forecast district level cotton production. This methodology was successfully tested to forecast production for 4 districts – Nagpur, Sirsa Bharuch, and Dharwar. National Agricultural Innovation Project (NAIP).
  • Efficient Land Use Based Integrated Farming System for Rural Livelihood Security in Aurangabad, Dhule & Gondia Districts of Maharashtra
This sub project implemented under component 3 of the National Agricultural Innovation Project. It was executed in three most disadvantaged districts of Maharashtra by the consortium of five organizations led by NBSS & LUP. The area of implementation was also varied in terms of soils, rainfall, crops & socio-economic settings. The sub-project, in general, has achieved success on five fronts: 1) Poverty alleviation 2) Livelihood Security 3) Productivity 4) Equity and 5) Environment. Land use planning was therefore aimed at optimal use of water resources, use of common property resources especially for landless villagers and implemented successfully to enhance paddy yields by 56 to 112%,  additional income (Rs.14,525/ha).
