Mention three constraints explaining why cultivable wasteland is not being used for cultivation at present.
The constraints are :
- Due to human neglect, large tracts of land of U.P., Punjab, and Haryana turned infertile due to salinity or alkalinity of the soil.
- Due to extensive soil erosion or waterlogging or lack of water, agricultural land of the past had to be abandoned.
- Due to unfavorable physiographic position or deficiencies in the soil resulting from faulty agricultural practices, large tracts of land now, can not be used for agriculture.
