It includes discussion. also from the soil. In order to keep the land productive, a good conservation program is imperative. Soil and water conservation is the basis of such a program, and also helps improve land impoverished by erosion and overuse—makes it more productive so.

This book will serve as a text for high school soils courses and as a manual for soil evaluation career development events (soil judging contests) which stimulate learning about soils in the field. Contests, organized through FFA and 4-H programs, have helped many young people learn about soils since the Manual of methods for soil and land evaluation book one in Indiana was held in Wayne.

Practical classes are devoted to balance calculation, soil and land evaluation, etc. Museum classes. Land evaluation assesses the performance of land based on a more or less systematic analysis of the physical land conditions and on the impact these have on present and alternative land use systems.
