Measures of Extent of Soil Degradation

1. Rationalizing Price Policy:

Resources like water and electricity have to be priced more realistically to avoid their indiscriminate use. Over use of water adversely affects yield & soil. Similarly price support policy for crops also needs a rebook to avoid concentration of resources in a few crops thereby leading to imbalances in food production.

2. Even Distribution of Water:

It is very uneven across the geographical regions as well as across the different regions of canal.

3. Water Management of Water:

Proper water management techniques are promoted to save water.

4. Promoting Organic Farming:

A suitable incentive scheme to promote the practice of organic farming, which improves productivity as well as health and environment friendly, will go long way to establish sustainable agriculture.
