Briefly describe the three major practices that expose soil to erosion and they can be corrected?
The three major causes of soil erosion are overcultivation, overgrazing, and deforestation. These are each all major problems in creating an unsustainable society. [ The good thing is that each of these causes of erosion can be corrected to create a more sustainable society. Overcultivation is the practice of repeatedly cultivating and growing crops more rapidly than the soil can regenerate,
leading to a decline in soil quality and productivity. Preparation in growing crop and after the harvest of crop, the soil is left exposed to erosion. Water and wind cause this erosion to take place. Plowing is frequently considered necessary to loosen the soil to improve aeration and infiltration through it, yet all too often the effect is just the reverse. The weight of the tractors cause the soil to become impacted which makes the soil more susceptible to erosion. Overcultivation erosion can be corrected by a no-till agriculture. According to this technique, the field is sprayed with herbicide to kill weeds and then a planting apparatus is pulled behind a tractor to accomplish several operations at once. This method prevents the soil to become compacted because harvesting steps have been minimized to a single step. Other strategies to minimize overcultivation are low-till farming and the use of fertilizers. These strategies have helped to minimize the process of soil erosion. Even though time is needed and money is lost with improving the methods to correct overcultivation, it is necessary and beneficial to farmers and consumers in the long run. Overgrazing is the phenomenon of grazing animals in greater numbers that the land can support in the long term. Due to animals consuming more grass than can be produced, the ground becomes sparse leaving the soil exposed to erosion. Wind and water erosion then damages the soil left unprotected. To help prevent overgrazing the NRCS (U.S. ]

Why do we need management?
Weegy: "A business is an ongoing activity that doesn't run itself. As the manager you will have to set goals, determine how to reach those goals and make all the necessary decisions. [ You will have to purchase or make your product, price it, advertise it and sell it. You will have to keep records, and determine costs. You will have to control inventory, make the right buying decisions and keep costs down. You will have to hire, train and motivate employees now or as you grow. Good business management is the key to success and good management starts with setting goals. Set goals for yourself for the accomplishment of the many tasks necessary in starting and managing your business successfully. Be specific. Write down the goals in measurable terms of performance. Break major goals down into sub-goals, showing what you expect to achieve in the next two to three months, the next six months, the next year, and the next five years. Beside each goal and sub-goal place a specific date showing when it is to be achieved." - ] (More)
