Haridwar District is belong to the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand known as Tarai-Bhabar region. The latitude of Haridwar, Uttarakhand, India is 29.945690, and the longitude is 78.164246. Kharif crops (Maize and Rice) and t Sugarcane is a whole year crop. The out of dominant ten crops, higher crop concentration 3.97 and 0.78 were observed in sugarcane and wheat crop respectively. But lowest crop concentration 0.01 and 0.10 were observed for barley and peas crops respectively. The Stability/sustainability Index values 0.79 and 0.74 are observed for rice and rapeseed and mustard respectively. The lowest value 0.42 was observed for masoor crop. The Relative Spread Index (RSI) The higher value 54.4 of the sugarcane was observed maximum but lowest value 0.016 observed for barley crop. The Relative Yield Index (RYI) the maximum values 154 and 142 for wheat and potato and minimum values 90 and 97 for peas and beans and Pulses and masoor crops. The average overall data series of twenty years observed Index of land- use Efficiency value was 41.1 for Haridwar and average value 36.8 observed. The indices are valuable for understanding of different crops efficiency in the study area.
