Land Use Indicators

Land use data from 2003-04 shows that 7 per cent of the total geographic area of FATA is cultivated, with another 1 per cent recorded as fallow, while more than 82 per cent of the land is not available for cultivation. This puts intense pressure on available farmland, which supports an average of 18 persons per cultivated hectare and more than 40 persons per irrigated hectare. Some 44 per cent of farmland is under irrigation, with the remaining cultivated area relying entirely on rainfall.
