Geography: The district is endowed with agricultural and horticultural crops
such as ragi, rice, groundnut, sugarcane, castor, grapes, mulberry,
etc. There are adequate infrastructural facilities such as transport
and communications, banking, credit, and marketing. Though the region
is not rich in mineral resources, its non-metallic mineral resources
are utilised for bricks, tiles, and stoneware manufacture. For many
years now, weaving has also been a major occupation for a large
section of the population. The soil and such climatic conditions are
congenial for the cultivation of mulberry, rearing of silkworms, and
production of silk, besides other agro-based industries.
Religion: Hinduism, Islam and Christianity are the three
main religions of this district.
Rivers: The major portion of Bangalore rural district lies in
the Arkavati valley. The Arkavati, the Kanva and the Dakshina
pinakini are the rivers which flow through the district in the
general direction from north to south.
