Soil degradation and soil erosion Causes, extent and management in India

Abstract:
The debate over worldwide soil degradation, its scope, and agronomic impact can only be answered by understanding the processes and circumstances that contribute to the creation of cause–effect connections for important soils, ecosystems, and land uses. Soil deterioration may be quantified by assessing its influence on productivity for various land uses and management techniques. On a worldwide basis, the most common kind of soil deterioration is accelerated soil erosion. Soil erosion is a severe environmental issue that affects all terrestrial ecosystems across the world. Erosion produces a wide range of major problems in both controlled and natural ecosystems, including crops, pasture, and forests. Erosion, in particular, lowers soil organic matter and, as a result of fast water discharge, diminishes water-holding capacity. Soil erosion can be managed by a regional evaluation procedure for the establishment and recovery of plant cover, as well as conservation measures implemented in the most susceptible regions. As a result, the protection of these critical resources must be prioritized in order to ensure the successful conservation of developed and natural ecosystems.
