The movement of population from Travancore to Malabar began in the 1930s. Many of the migrants who settled primarily in the hilly tracts of Malabar were small farmers from Travancore. The majority were Christians belonging to the Syrian Catholic denomination. From the 1920s to the 1960s Travancore experienced a much greater rate of population increase than did the Malabar region (), but the proportion of arable land under cultivation was lower in Malabar than in the Travancore region, providing a strong attraction for migrant farmers. As a result, beginning in the 1960s the population growth rate of Malabar caught up with and surpassed that of Travancore.

Clay mining also has reduced the availability of land for rice cultivation (Resmi, 1996). After the topsoil has been removed for four to five years, land used for clay mining can seldom be used for growing rice cultivation. The loss of rice fields to clay mining also results in a decline in the groundwater recharging capacity of the area. Moreover, mining clay upstream and in the middle area of irrigation projects adversely affects water retention capacity. Clay mining therefore often has several unfavorable economic and ecological effects (Resmi, 1996).

The year 1975 is considered a major turning point in cropping patterns; the area used for rice cultivation reached its peak that year (). After 1975 there was a clear shift away from food crops, mainly rice and tapioca, in favor of tree crops such as rubber and coconut and some of the export-oriented crops such as pepper, ginger, and coffee. As a result, coconut, pepper, coffee, rubber, cashews, and fruits increased in area, while cereals, sugarcane, and tea declined in area. These shifts have significant implications for the food security of the state, which already depends on outside supplies to meet more than half the its food requirements.
