Farmland utilization and improvements for agricultural production infrastructure: farmland consolidation

Farmland consolidation is the act of consolidating a series of fragmented and irregular farmland plots to enlarge plot their size and support sufficient irrigation. Farmland consolidation also combines and groups the proprietor’s farmland into one area by administrative give-and-take as well as division-and-junction of their land. Moreover, it also includes the rearrangement of farmland, which is small or lacks sufficient infrastructure due to farmland consolidation or earthwork waterways projects that were done in the past. Such areas can be reconsolidated into a larger scale production by employing farm machinery.

This study is intended not only to investigate the process, achievement, and outcomes of the Farmland Consolidation Project, which has been constantly implemented since the late
1960’s, but also to draw out the implications of these findings.
