Land consolidation (LC) can be defined as rearranging the rural area in line with the needs of the society and individuals according to the needs of the developing agricultural technology, and taking all necessary measures to enable agricultural enterprises to work more efficiently. Reallocation quantity depends on the agricultural land valuation. In Turkey, LC projects are performed by different two legal institutions and these institutions use different methods for the production of gradation maps. The purpose of this study was to determine and evaluate effects of different gradation maps obtained by the two different methods for two different legal institutions for the same project area. According to findings in this and many similar studies, the results of both methods are seen as close to each other. First, in the study area, there were 1216 cadastral parcels. The number of the parcels after application of Law no. 3083 decreased to 614 in the 35 new blocks. Furthermore, the number of parcels decreased to 749 in the 35 new blocks after the application of Law no. 5403. Models were compared in terms of parcel sizes. In the reallocation according to the two methods, differences according to the average squares are below that specified in the regulations error limit. This case demonstrates the applicability of both methods. So, no. 3083 “Agrarian Reform Act for Land Arrangements in Irrigation Areas” and no. 5403 “Soil Conservation and Land Use” should be combined under the same framework. New regulations for this case will relax practitioners.
