Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
This column will be filled only if the 'land use' code is '01' to '12' i.e., the land is used for cultivation of orchard, plantation and seasonal crops like cereals, pulses, oilseeds, mixed crop, sugarcane, other crop, vegetables, fibre crop and fodder. Irrigation refers to purposely providing land with water, other than rain, for improving pastures or crop production. Uncontrolled land flooding by overflowing of rivers or streams is not considered irrigation. However, when rainwater or uncontrolled overflow from rivers and streams is collected and later used on the land for crop or pasture production, it is considered irrigation. If the plot is irrigated during the reference agricultural season (Kharif or Rabi), code 1 will be recorded, otherwise, code 2. Like water-logging, the plot will be considered as irrigated if the major part of the plot is irrigated.
