Résumé
The study was conducted in the River Nile State (Lat 16º-22º N and long 32º-36ºE) , Atbra Food Security Scheme to assess the impact of adopted management systems on land degradation using some Indicators (biophysical indicators). Soil samples were collected from three farms of different systems and uncultivated site (control). Also Water samples were taken from the main irrigation canal coming from the main River Nile and well used for drinking. Statistical analysis reflected significant ( ) differences in some of the soil properties. The study showed that the adopted land use systems have appositive impact on land quality by increasing the organic mater content and reducing sand content in the cultivated area as compared to the uncultivated site. The study showed the high suitability of the canal water for irrigation (Ece=0.157dS/m, PH=8.03). The characteristic of the drinking water in the study area fell in the recommended level of WHO (RSC=1.20).
