Agro - climatic Zone : Bundelkhand Zone (VI)
Agro - Ecological Situation :
Agro-ecological situation of the district were indentified through discussions with the consultant SIMA, KVKs and line department officers on climate, rainfall, vatriation in temperature topography, irrigation, soil type and its depth affected by erosion and how these factors affected the farming system within the the district. After sound discussion, the district was divided into two Agro-Ecological Situations (AESs) as AES-I is having red soil series as rakar and parwa (local name-Patli soils) with medium slope, AES-II black soil series as mar and kabar (local name-Malwa soils) with slight to medium slope.
In district Lalitpur, soil strata is rocky, terrain is undulating and slope ranges between (0.5 to 10%) and hillocks spreading here and there. Soils in the district are required in nature and formed in situ. Red soils originate from barren rock genesis granite and sometimes from sand supton. Black in contrast are formed partly in situ and partly transported with material like lime stone and trap.
List of representative blocks covered under each Agro-Ecological Situation of the district.

In the year 2007-08, during kharif sesason 40 % production loss occurred due to dry spell and in rabi 40% area was unsown due loss of moisture. Due to these losses in production small and marginal farmers left their houses for mazdoori in different cities.

Out of total Geographical area of the district 519.3 thousand ha. forest waste land and other than cultivated area constitute about 23.39% which indicates thepossibilities for further extension in cultivated area. Cultivable waste is also about 119179 ha. which is significant and further indicates additional opportunities of intensification and diversification of agriculture & related production systems. One of the important features of land utilization of the district is current fallow, which can be converted into production system.
