Soil Conservation:-

Erosion is the removal of soil particles by the motion of wind or water. Soil erosion is one of the major concerns of modern agriculture through the world. Erosion causes decline in soil fertility, water supply and crop yields. Thus it affects the productivity of the land which decreases the production of food, feed, fiber and fuel, and also causes flood, silting up of water reservoirs, disruption of communication systems.

Soil Conservation being the important wing of the Agriculture department is engage not only to protect the valuable agriculture land from the erosion problems but also to bring more land under cultivation and to combat water scarcity by effective utilization of rain and flood water through water harvesting technology and low cost conservation structures like Retaining wall, Protection Bund, Spur, Water Storage reservoirs, Spillway, Water Inlet/Outlet, Check dam.
