Abstract:
Land use is dynamic process and resources are very essential for all human activities. It is the most important natural resource in a country like India, where the agriculture sectors are fairly more dominant than the manufacturing sectors. Land, as a major factor in agriculture, occupies a significant position among the other tools required for the operation of the agricultural sector. Land Use Pattern (LUP) specifies the quantity of the area under diverse forms of use, for example, the area actually cultivated, the forest, the fallow land, and the area under settlements, etc. The land use area mainly depends on the environmental, physical and population pressures on the land. The study has been made to understand the changes in temporal land use pattern in districts of Karnataka due to industrialization and increase in human population. Herfindahl and Simpson Indices were used to identify the changes in land classification. The Kendall’s coefficient of concordance and rank correlation revealed that Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts showed high changes in land classification whereas, Bijapur, Gadag and Bagalkot showed least changes.
