Abstract: To find out reason and exact mechanism of deep Chambal formation, complete profile was excavated and studied to identify the reality. Maps of all five districts (Bhind, Datia, Gwalior, Morena and Shivpur) of Gird region for ravine lands were developed with the help of remote sensing & GIS software and area was estimated. The reason of deep ravine advancement and unsuccessful story of past approaches were identified. To identify suitable crop rotation along with different agro-horti-medicinal and silvi-pastoral systems were studied. The potential of carbon sequestration through various modules was monitored. The potential and suitable crop rotation (Pearl millet- Wheat, Pearl millet- Gram or –wheat) for ravineous land was identified. The use of Silvi- pastoral and crop production system and partially changed topography can help in checking soil & water loss and save the land for restoring eco-friendly agro-ecosystem and soil health.
