Land use is the purpose or way in which a particular stretch of land is used. It is the modification and changes that are brought into the natural environment for the development of built environment, settlements, agriculture or management of forests. It determines that pattern in which the land is used.
Fallow lands are those lands that are left barren to improve the physical features and fertility of the soil for some seasons. The farmers leave a part of their land that they cultivate s barren to allow the soil to regain its nutrients. This is the agricultural land that is not temporarily cultivated. Sometimes, the land is permanently left barren if it is unfit for cultivation. Thus, if a particular stretch of land is left fallow, it cannot be termed as land use as the land is not being used for any purpose. The future potential use of the land is also uncertain. Thus, leaving land fallow cannot be termed as land use.
