Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh are some states affected by over-grazing. These states are growing fast in terms of agriculture and industry, and energy. Land degradation, however, is a major hindrance on the road to progress in these states. This is due to the large growth of population, rapid urban growth which has placed stress on the fertile lands, following intensive agricultural practices, heavy use of fertilizers, overgrazing, deforestation, etc. Overgrazing is a major cause of land degradation due to loss of protective cover of crops, grass and other plants by livestock, to aid in income and industry.
