Land Patent Transcription

Classification: Query
Can someone please help me out with the last paragraph on the right side of the attached document? I can't quite make out what it says or means, here is what I think I am reading but there is one word I cannot seem to figure out.

"The petitioner having received 100 acres as an emigrant in 1820, it does not appear ampedient??? to grant him 100 acres more until he produces certificates that the land he now owns is unfit for cultivation."

Thank you!
