Distribution of rice based zone wise for Jharkhand state

1. The state is divided into the three rice sub zones. In General, the plateau region of Chotanagpur and Santhal Parganas is characterized by humid and sub humid tropical monsoon in sub zone IV, sub humid to subtropical in sub zone V and humid to sub-tropical in sub zone VI, undulating Plateau, hills and mountains, non existence of perennial rivers, initially high forest cover, which is depleting fast due to mineral and industrial exploitation and encroachment, concentration of tribal population in many areas with a life style geared to forest ecology, pockets with chronic drought conditions, erratic rainfall, low ground water level, high soil erosion, insufficient agricultural dairy and fishery activities, rising agricultural unemployment and acute poverty.
