Sustainable land management is the use of land to meet changing human needs (agriculture, forestry, conservation), while ensuring long-term socioeconomic and ecological functions of the land. A sustainable land use system could be a cattle ranching production system that includes trees in order to increase carbon storage in that location and that has good access to markets so it can earn revenues from its economic activities. Sustainable soil and land management practices provide options to manage soil, water, and plants, and their interactions under a specific set of biophysical and socio-economic conditions.

Soil conservation practices are tools the agriculturist can utilize to avoid soil debasement and construct natural matter. These hones incorporate: edit revolution, decreased culturing, mulching, cover editing and cross-slope cultivating. Soil administration hones can be classified as those influencing culturing, situation, and joining of buildup and supplements. It is imperative to get it that changes in soil administration hones influence soil water adjust, temperature, organic action, and gas trade between the soil and the air [1]. Good management of soils ensures that mineral components don't gotten to be lacking or toxic to plants, which fitting mineral components enter the nourishment chain. Soil administration is critical, both straightforwardly and in a roundabout way, to trim efficiency, natural maintainability, and human wellbeing.

Soil preservation are different hones of cultivating operations and administration techniques which are conducted with the reason of controlling soil disintegration by dodging or minimizing soil molecule separation and development of water or/and discuss. Some general principles of maintainable horticulture can be recorded as takes after: Soil must be ensured and created: Soil is completely fundamental for great and sound items. Soil ought to be improved with common fertilizers such as natural and green fertilizer and compost [2].

Soil preservation is demonstrated to extend the quality and amount of trim yields over the long term since it keeps topsoil in its put and jam the long term efficiency of the soil. To develop sufficient nourishment not as it were for ourselves; but too for individuals in third would nations where there are nourishment deficiencies. The principal environmental variables influencing life in soils incorporate dampness, temperature, pH, air circulation (i.e. nearness or nonattendance of adequate oxygen), natural matter, and inorganic supplements such as nitrogen and phosphorus. Quickened disintegration of topsoil due to human exercises and destitute agrarian arrive administration may be a possibly genuine issue. The zones most defenseless to soil disintegration incorporate areas with lean natural (A and O) skylines and uneven territories (see Figure Water Disintegration Defenselessness). Water Disintegration Helplessness [3].

Artificial and natural windbreaks, such as shrubs, diminish the disintegration impacts of wind. Plants too have the included advantage of anchoring the soil, diminishing the impacts of disintegration from water. Terracing of inclines diminishes the impacts of water runoff and makes a difference moderate rain water. To progress soil structure and waste, increment the soil natural matter level with compost, natural mulches, living plants, and cover crops (vegetable gardens). Adding fine sand to overwhelming clay soil in an exertion to move forward soil structure and waste can diminish pore space and moderate waste assist [4].
