Land degradation has recently been exacerbated in rangelands of arid Rajasthan by heavy grazing pressures. The total livestock population in the arid region of Rajasthan has reached 29.25 million in the year 2001 from 10.34 million in the year 1951. In terms of adult cattle units (ACU) the...
Wind tunnel tests on silty textured loessial soils throughout the Columbia Plateau of eastern Washington state and northern central Oregon were used to define soil erodibiltiy for wind erosion predictions. Aggregate and primary particle size distributions were determined by common techniques and...
Vertisols of Iran occupy about 70,000 ha of arable land. They are located in four provinces mainly: Fars (16,000 ha), as soils on calcareous sediments of lowlands, with a ustic-hyperthermic soil climate; Kermanshah (34,000 ha) and Lorestan (6,000 ha), as soils on calcareous sediments in alluvial...
Abstract Open cast mining of lignite leaves behind stockpiles of excavated materials (dumps) and refilled mining pits (spoils). Dumps and spoils remain barren and their surface materials are deposited to adjoining fields through wind and water erosion deteriorating their productivity....
Abstract Irrigated agriculture in arid and semiarid regions of the world has resulted in salinity and waterlogging problems that are threatening the sustainability of our lands. Based on pH of the saturated paste, electrolytic conductivity of the saturated paste extract (ECe), and exchangeable...
Abstract In recent years, using pedotransfer functions to estimate hard-to-measure soil properties has become an attractive alternative to direct measurements due to savings in time and experimental costs. The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of pedotransfer functions in...
