Agricultural activities such as shifting cultivation, without adequate fallow periods, absence of soil conservation measures, fertilizer use and a host of possible problems arising from faulty planning or management of the land all lead to intense land degradation within the study :// For effective conservation of soil and water, we must treat and use the various kinds of land according to their capability and need. To do this it is necessary to study the land carefully, so as to be able to fit conservation practices and structures to the various kinds of ://   Increasing soil organic carbon of agricultural land.

Soil erosion and deforestation are the main forms of land degradation responsible for the decline in land productivity in turn reducing income of farm households in Ethiopia.

Land use and land-use change have important economic and environmental implications for commodity production and trade, soil and water conservation, and other policy issues.

The study also captures the views of agricultural stakeholders including farmers, agricultural landlords and statutory consultees and identifies areas where best and most versatile agricultural land is likely to be present including the Green Belt parcels that The first step in determining good land use is to study the site and the soils to determine capabilities.

This manual discusses how to study and evaluate soils to decide their best use. It primarily applies to agriculture and related uses. However, the same principles are considered for non-agricultural land We considered the U.S. agricultural land base and accounted for losses, processing conversions, livestock feed needs, suitability of land for crops or grazing, and land productivity.
