Cultivation Statistics Of Nagpur
419 Square Miles Occupied For Cultivation

Of the total area of the District in 1905-06, 532 square miles or 14 percent consisted of Government forest, 343 square miles or 9 percent were classed as not available for cultivation and 419 square miles or 11 percent were shown as culturable waste other than fallow. The remaining area, amounting to 2554 square miles, or 16,30,000 acres, and constituting 66 percent of the total or 77 percent of the village area excluding Government forest, was occupied for cultivation. Even at the 30 years settlement the occupied area was 14,00,000 acres or 67 percent of the village area at that time. In the intervening period up to Mr. Craddock’s settlement, about 42 square miles of Government wastes were made available for cultivation. At that settlement (1891-93), the occupied area was 15,70,000 acres, showing an increase  of 170,000 acres or 12 percent during the thirty years. During the ensuing 14 years up to 1905-06, the increase has been 65,000 acres or 4 percent on the settlement figure. At Mr. Craddock’s settlement the unoccupied area, excluding excluding Government forest, was 845 square miles and he estimated that  340 square miles of this were actually culturable. About 100 square miles have since been taken up, at the rate of about 1500 acres a year, of very nearly the same as the average annual increase during the 30 years settlement. It may be estimated that the future progress will be slower. Al settlement the proportion of occupied to total area in each tahsil was Nagpur 19; Umrer70; Ramtek 74; Katol 75. The corresponding figures for 1905-06 were: - Nagpur 81; Umrer 72; Ramtek 78; katol 78
