Agriculture Soils Of Nagpur
Wheat Land

The usual allowances were made for advantages and disadvantages of position. Fields recorded as pathar, hilly or wahuri cut up by erosion, amounted to about 14 per cent of the better-class land or that classified as capable of growing wheat. Nearly two-thirds of the cultivated area of 13,00,000 acres fell into this category, the bulk of the remainder being of somewhat inferior quality and known as minor crop land. Distinctions of position were not applied to its latter area; otherwise no doubt many fields in the Katol tahsil, where the surface is noticeably undulating, would have been classed as wahuri, as it was most of the land subject to injury form erosion lay in the Umrer tahsil. Land  classes as ran, or subject to the depredations of wild animals, is common in the villages near the hills in both Nagpur and Umrer. The embankment of land irregularly practiced only in certain level areas along the Bhandara border in order to enable a broadcasted rice crop to be grown with a spring crop to follow. Elsewhere embankments are made only at field corners or along one side of a field to protect it from erosion.  Out of 820,000 acres of land recorded as capable of growing, wheat, 640,000 or nearly four-fifths were classified under the ordinary or sadharan position. Mr. Craddock was of opinion that in future it would be desirable to have a separate class fro level or saman fields distinguishing them from ordinary fields, which are not quite level but yet of not so irregular a surface as to be recorded as hilly or cut up by erosion.
