Soil Productivity Rating Index Model Using Geographic Information System in Libya

Abstract

Sans titre

Food security for the ever increasing world’s populations is the main challenge faces agriculture production for the coming decades. Sustainable soil uses and management can play a key role in sustainable agriculture production. The evaluation of land for specific purpose is  a crucial tool for land use planning. There are many land evaluation techniques which have been developed to assess land for different uses. The parametric approach is one that combines various soil and site properties (parameters) that are believed to influence yield using mathematical formula. The Storie Index Rating was an early attempt at quantitative land evaluation and an example of parametric approach. The system has been widely applied around the world, for example,   it was adapted in Libya. The Libyan modified index rating  takes into account local conditions to determine the properties included. Local experiences were used to classify the soil suitability (Mahmoud, 1995).The rating were taking into account eleven soil properties to produce an overall rating. This paper modified the productivity rating and produce computerized model which uses spreadsheet model for suitability analysis and integrates the results in geographic information system (GIS) environment. GIS allow modelling, running a range of soil use scenarios and data manipulate so that the optimal soil use can be identified to achieve sustainable development. In addition, it allow  the comparison between different land evaluation techniques to select the most appropriate to local conditions and development goals.
