Over half of the land is in forest, one-f on,rib in cropland, and one-sixth in pasture. About one twenty-fifth of our land Ls in once between human interests and the conservation of natural resources is desirable. If these goals are to ever be achieved, cextain steps must be taken. Members of the seminar suggested land use impact stud- ies of major developments such as highways, ports..airports, in- dustries and cities.

The development sissippi Cooperative Extension of a basic invent(ry of land and Land Use Center. These facts water resources in each of ten were made known at tl]e first State Land Use Seminar held .at Mississippi State University in May. More than one million acres of land are going into urban se on a nationwide basis each year. In 25 years the timber demand .will be double and food and clothing will be more than double. It will take 200 years with an average of two children per family to reduce population to the 1930 level. "With overpopulation, land most productive fox food. cloth- ing and shelter must be put to best use," Chopin said. "To do this effectively we must deter- mihe what land is capable of producing, and learn its limita- tions." Dr. Harvey Vanderford, Mis- sissippi State University agrono- mist, explained that the soil should be one of our primary conside.,rations. Mississippi has been divide:t into eight capability classes and subdivided in each group by slope, erosion, dryness and wet- ne,ss. "Classes one through four are our best lands for crops, pas- ture and timber," Vanderford said. "Land that is too steep for exops is best for pasture and timber, and land that is too wet for crops is often ideal for hard- wood forest and wildlife. Dry lands are good for pasture and some timber but not ,for crops. "We should protect our 756,000 acres of class one land for crops," Vanderford continued. "Urban development is especial- ly critical. Once class one land I is taken for this use, it can l seldom be reclaimed for food production." The seminar identified several land use problems. Included regions in t,he state for crop- land, forest, recreation and urban uses was another recom- mendation ,made. "These measures will require adequate funding. Many people will consider the expense un- necessary," Chopin said. "How- ever, we must remember that what may look' like a personal sacrifice today is really a com- mitment to tomorrow." or now lamina holiday humour'.'
