Kajian Potensi Dan Status Kerusakan Tanah Pada Lahan Pertanian di Kecamatan Denpasar Timur
The Study of Potential and of Status Soil Degradation at Agriculture Land in East of Denpasar Sub-District
A study was aiming to evaluate soil degradation based on the Standard Criteria of Soil Degradation for Biomass Production under Indonesian Government Regulation No. 150 Year 2000 had done in East of Denpasar Sub-District on 2014.
