Abstract
Growth in the agriculture sector may well be judged by the increase in agricultural production over time. The area under different crops has been fluctuating. However; there was improvement in production, which is mainly on account of increase in productivity as result of generation of new varieties or technology of their cultivation. This paper analyses the changes inland use and the cropping pattern in Tamilnadu, The cultivable area has decreased by five percent and the land put to non- agricultural use (i.e urbanization) increased by three percent to the total geographical area of Tamilnadu.
