Methods of Soil Conservation






To conserve the soil requires the following methods:

• Control of soil erosion by water or wind;

• Improving soil fertility through manuring;

• avoid overgrazing, over cultivation and over cropping;

• avoid indiscriminate felling of trees (deforestation);

• improved agricultural practice/crop rotation and planting of cover crops;

• avoid soil pollution by oil spillage, dumping of effluents  and chemical from industries, metal scraps/plastic/ polythene materials, radioactive wastes and other pollutants;

• afforestation for prevention of wind erosion and desertification.
