?Provide Soil Map For Nigeria?

?Provide soil map for Nigeria?

The Federal Government has been told to provide a detailed soil map for Nigeria.

A professor of Soil Science Abayomi Fasina, who delivered the 37th inaugural lecture of the Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado-Ekiti, suggested that the Federal Government should assemble qualified experts to produce the map.

He noted that the mandate to have such a map should have a strong financial backing while information gathered from the soil survey should be useful for sustainable land management for agricultural and non-agricultural purposes.

Fasina, in his 76-page lecture entitled: ?Can these soils sustain: The dilemma of a Pedologist,? urged the government to enforce proper land use regulations to keep prime lands for agriculture.

He also suggested a general education and public enlightenment on land use planning in Nigeria, urging that the land use decree be modified to remove bottlenecks in conservation practices.
