Capability and Suitability Assessment
The system aids in distinguishing and recommending land capability based on the best land capability classes owing to their morphology and physicochemical characteristics of a given area. Furthermore, aiming at evaluating land systems for a specific defined agricultural use relative to the suitability of the land for that use.
Soil Survey and mapping
Undertake the inventory of soils occurring in a given area delineating them based on one or more properties, plotting their boundaries on a map, and interpreting those properties relative to their management requirements, capabilities, and use.
Soil and Water Conservation
Awareness and advocacy and design and construction specifications of the measures (agronomic, vegetative, and structural) applied to control runoff, channel flow, and wind velocity, thus reducing soil erosion are of great importance in conservation measures for farmlands.
Crop suitability Assessment
Guide emphasis to matching crops and, or species to site attributed to soil analysis and testing and soil capability and suitability recommendations.
Soil Analysis and Testing
Provide sampling protocol and standards for soil testing and fertilizer and or lime recommendations. The primary concern relates to obtaining samples that accurately represent the field of interest.
Assess current soil loss rates and relate them to economic losses. Several methods, quantitative and qualitative may be deployed based on site morphology.
