Sanobar Khudaybergenova, Akmal Akramkhanov. (1/1/2016). Transition from pasture land to fruit and fodder plots. Beirut, Lebanon: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
The areas in the Varzob valley of Tajikistan with steep slopes of ca. 30% represent the degraded pastures. The soil surface, which has been almost deprived of vegetation, is compacted and is subject to erosion. In 1982, a landholderinnovator planted grapes and fruit trees on 0.5 ha and above this site prepared another site for grass cultivation on hay on his own initiative. In five years the degraded site turned into a site of sustainable land use.
