Abstract:
Soil degradation is defined as "the rate of adverse changes in soil qualities resulting in a decline in productive capacity of land due to a process induced mainly by human intervention." 1 Soil is of great importance to mankind. It provides food, fodder, and generates employment. Soil supports many ecosystems, biodiversity and ground water. Hence soil degradation can have many undesirable consequences. In order to ensure growth and economic development it is essential to make sure that advances in agriculture and industry do not degrade the soil on which they depend.
