Land Utilisation

_______________________________

Dhemaji and Lakhimpur district have extensive plain areas, suitable for cultivation but due to improper land use planning and unplanned constructions a huge chunk of land becomes water logged due to rain water as well as excessive flood water. Some of these areas dry out during winter while some remain as ditches, cesspools or waterlogged ‘beel’ areas. Both these districts have a good number of ‘beels’ and marshes covered with thick and dense population of weeds, water hyacinth, water lily etc. ranging in height from ten to twenty feet. In addition, some areas are sand casted by flash floods caused by embankment breaches.

The land use pattern of the district is reflected in the Table below: -
