Soil physical degradation is a major environmental problem throughout the world due to its negative impact on biomass and economic production. This study conducts rapid soil analysis using GIS and remote sensing imagery to provide a precision mapping of soil physical condition indicators in the study area and producing fertility status using Geostatistical approach. Study has been carried out to map the areas with physical degradation using remotely sensed data from Indian Remote Sensing LISS III sensor. Satellite data have been used for qualitative assessment of areas, being subject to soil erosion. The RUSLE method was used to arrive at final soil degradation maps. The eroded areas of degraded lands will be used as an input for planning reclamation and conservation programs, distress mapping and social outreach in Yavatmal District of Maharashtra.
