Soil Degradation in Son-Karamnasa Interfluve in Bihar

Dilip Kumar [20]

Abstract: Soils are the most valuable life supporting natural resource for the society since they produce food, fibre and fodder, which are basic to our very existence. For sustained utilization of the soil resource, it is imperative to know the nature, characteristics and extent of distribution of different soils, and their qualities, productive capacity and suitability for alternative land uses. Further, in order to assess the potential and problems of different soils and to develop rational land use for optimizing agricultural production, need consistent and comparable information about soils health. In Son-Karamnasa interfluve, due to mismanagement, the productivity of the soil, is declining because of degradation of soil. Basically, this area is under Son canal command area and due to over irrigation and over utilization of chemical fertilizer intensify this degradation. As the study area is bounded by rivers led to bank erosion is also prominent in this region.
