Note: these figures are simply produced by dividing the total amount of land by the population and almost certainly do not reflect actual use. Per household, the average figure in the Samarkand District was 13.9 desyatinas, of which 5.7 desyatinas were irrigated and 2.7 bahari, or rain‐fed. The figures are of doubtful accuracy, as the Samarkand Statistical Committee only looked at a small sample of the 80,677 different plots in the District.
