The research on “The Forms and Effects of Soil Degradation on Agricultural Land” was
calTied out in Bor town Jonglei State, south Sudan. The major areas of the investigation
were discussed to known the causes of soil degradation and adverse impacts on farming
land and what solutions to be put in place to minimize the occurrence of soil degradation.
Methods like photography, interviews, questionnaires, and observation were used for
effective and efficient data collection.
At the period of study, the level of soil degradation was established in the following
forms as shown bellow; massive deforestation 12.2%, monoculture 16.33%, climate
change, 8.16% ,extensive cultivation / soil compaction 20.41%, overgrazing 24.49%,
while advancement of Kidepo sand accounts for 6.2%, (over grazing taking great
percentage of all the forms).

to be put in place to stop people in the community to practice poor methods of farming,
agro biodiversity conservation and enhancement, soil conservation management, proper
use of agrochemicals , sustainable pasture management, integrated pest management,
agro forestry management and sustainable agriculture.
The research recommendation forwarded are among others; use of organic farming on
agriculture land, proper soil management strategies, provision of leguminous viable seeds for soil conservation management, and agro-biodiversity conservation.
