A New Classification Procedure for Agricultural Land According to Use Capabilities and Its Importance to Forestry
Federal, state, and local agencies are making a determined effort to obtain better land use and management. Action programs have been and are being developed further for making needed adjustments. The findings of research are being combined with the results of experience to develop good land use and proper management. Classes of land according to use capability, a recent development, interpret soil conservation surveys by providing for a simple grouping of the physical factors surveyed with the intent of presenting simple and easily understood recommendations to be followed by almost anyone. Colored maps, together with tables showing recommended land use and cultural practices, are made available. This procedure may have far reaching effects on farm forestry.
