The present study attempted to discuss and analyses the extent of cultivation, size of plots, system of farming on the cultivated land, cropping pattern (Agricultural Productivity and Efficiency), categories of land etc. and finally the problems and suggestions for better agricultural development in the study area. Purulia district has great physical inequalities in its various geomorphic regions. In the present paper, all the above mentioned aspects except cropping pattern will be discussed on village level data base. Number of maps has been prepared to depict the cropping pattern of highly undulating and rolling topography by using Arc GIS 10.2.1 software. Besides, some statistical methods (productivity index and agricultural efficiency etc.) have been used to study the agricultural land use and production in the study area. Each and every geomorphic region possesses totally different physical characteristics and hence the impact on agricultural land use and production.
