Effect of Human Factor to Reallocation Phase of Land Consolidation

Tayfun Çay, Ela Ertunç



Land consolidation is one of the important devices provide productivity growth in agricultural production. Land reallocation is a process which is time-consuming, high execution costly and causes a lot of disagreements between landowners. In block reallocation process of land consolidation studies; after road and irrigation network is passed, plots covered by road and irrigation networks (block) are placed locationally according to claimed amounts by considering soil graduation. Regular parcels are created grafically according to shape of the blocks after this placing and given to the landowners. Reallocation and creating new parcels should be made equally and fairly between employers. Otherwise there will be rejections, farmer satisfaction will not be provided and project will not be accepted. From this point of view it can be said that block reallocation is the most sensitive and care demanding process of land consolidation. In this study, acquired results of block priority based reallocation method, which is applied by two different person, are compared. According to this comparison, effect of human factor to reallocation is studied.


Keywords: Land consolidation, land reallocation, interview based reallocation, block priority reallocation
