Degradation processes on cropland in Mongolia

, : Degradation processes on cropland in Mongolia. Eurasian Soil Science 26(8): 88-98

Arable soils in Mongolia are regarded as unstable ecosystems because of active degradation resulting from climate, relief, soil properties, and the farming system used. The most active sources of degradation are aeolian and erosional processes, as well as soil processes associated with degradation of the humic horizon and with increases in the proportion of skeletal components and sand in the soils.
