Classes in orange/red show areas in which socio-economic possibilities of farmers are good, while agro-ecological suitability is poor.

(2002): Global Agro-ecological Assessment for Agriculture in the 21st Century: Methodology and Results. International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, Laxenburg, Austria Positional marginality classes where defined by socio-economic capabilities of farmers: 1. Access to technology (% of holders applying inorganic fertilizer to any crop during Meher season) 2. Access to credit (% of holders utilizing credit services) 3.
