Sustainable agriculture would be achieved if lands can be categorized and utilized based upon their different uses. Information regarding to different land uses and recommendations for deciding ?which crops to grow where' and related questions is answered by land evaluation. Land evaluation is the selection of suitable land, and suitable cropping, irrigation and management alternatives that are physically and financially practicable and economically viable. In order to assure sustained production and increased yield, the effects of our use of soil must be understood: information about a certain area of land becomes an essential component. Then, detailed study must be done to guide farmers in choosing the best crops to be cultivated (for small area) and decision makers in planning the rural development (for large area) or to find out which parcels of land may best support the different crops commonly grown by the local farmers based on the physical and chemical properties of the soil and recommend these result to the local stake holders for an increase in yield.
