Abstract

One of the important issues that come up in recent decades has been the fragmentation of agricultural land and frequency of plots. Fragmentation of plots and being small is one of the challenges and major obstacles in the way of increasing production and ultimately the development of agriculture. In recent years, agricultural production has not been commensurate with the growth of population. On the other hand, small size of agricultural units and their fragmentation had been created some limitations in agricultural production. Limitations such as to equip and prepare the production surface, infrastructure performance and utilization of machines, increasing the quantity and quality of products and increase the efficiency in various fields. Farmlands consolidation means integrating or coordinating all agricultural activities such as land preparation, seeds preparation, fertilizers, pesticides and farm machinery, maintenance and use them correctly, proper farm management and marketing of agricultural products, so that we can lead cultivation and crops type in accordance with the needs of the community while raising power of production. This study used a descriptive – analytical method to investigate the consolidation agricultural land plan in the Masal city and the results show that dispersion of plots and being small is one of the challenges and major obstacles in the way of increasing production and ultimately the development of agriculture. To determine the factors affecting the adoption of land consolidation by rice farmers, the logit regression model was used.
