Özet

The main problems of the agricultural sector in our country are small land, multi-part areas, and formless land and also scattered plots. Today, expropriation for the purpose of acquisition of land on agricultural land increase the fragmentation on land. Land consolidation applications have been extended in recent years in order to reduce fragmentation of land. This study was conducted within the scope of the Develi Irrigation Project carried out in the responsibility of the 12th Regional Directorate under the authority of the General Directorate of State Hydraulic Works. Parcels in three units in the area of the land consolidation project, due to land acquisition and land consolidation project, were investigated about changes based on the project in terms of the number of parcels, changes in average parcel size and parcel shapes. According to the results obtained from the application, expropriation of land led to the increase in the fragmentation of land, thus, the application was determined to have affected the use of agricultural land adversely. On the contrary, it was determined that more favorable agricultural land was created with land consolidation.
