Agriculture as a visible aspect of landscape on earth'ssurface has been variable with people, space time and as such form an integralpart of geography. Not only the structural and spatial character ofagriculture, but even its taxonomic aspect has attracted geographers who, likeany other specialist have attempted to study and analyses related variedaspects of agriculture at global to regional and even micro and microscopic(local) levels, based on scientific and suitable quantitative methods andtechniques. The concept of agricultural typology is a systematic or taxonomiccharacter and represents the sum of total of the mutual relation of social,operational, productional and structural attributes in which an agriculturallandscape develops, It helps to explain why a particular type emerges in aparticular area and at? a particular moment of time. The agriculturaltypological investigation is thus a scientific, precise and comparable analysisbased on selected 24 to 27 variables, covering the entire taxonomix gamut ofcomplex agricultural features of the Tribal Region of the Southern Rajasthan.The application of the approved IGU methods and techniques for agriculturaltypological types and regions in the Tribal Region of Southern Rajasthan hasreflected the insufficiency of the methodology at this microscopic level. Theresult of the investigation are far from the existing reality of theagricultural? scene in the area andtherefore, an attempt has been made towards modification in the class valuesand sub-categorization after the third order agricultural types. Additionally,the investigation uses the agricultural development planning in the tribalRegion of Southern Rajasthan.
