Conclusion

Growing population, unsustainable land use practices, extensive deforestation, increased demand on land based agro activities are leading to the fast degradation of world's scarce land resources and affecting productivity in agriculture. While over exploitation of natural resources like land has a direct bearing on agricultural productivity and food security, the treatment of wastelands and protection of farm lands from constant degradation through integrated land management procedures is the need of the hour. In spite of large public investments, the innovative and integrated land management practices have not been able to show satisfactory results in bringing degraded lands of the country into the cultivable land fold. Integrated watershed management, due to its inbuilt emphasis on social mobilization and community involvement, have been successful in somewhat preventing wastelands from further degradation and have also been successful in developing barren lands for productive agricultural use in various arid and semi arid areas of the country. Thus, there is an immediate need to identify and list land treatment processes and procedure already in vogue under various land development programmes and to build awareness on these techniques amongst the community in villages so as to ensure sustainable wasteland management.
