    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Sustainable Development is the utilization of resources to ensure the creation of&lt;br&gt;
materials and/or facilities/ devices that improve the well-being of man and his habitat in such&lt;br&gt;
a way and manner that the resources continue to be available for exploitation over a long&lt;br&gt;
period of time. However, many interacting factors of both nature and human activities&lt;br&gt;
continue to constitute great obstacles in the realization of the goal. This paper is aimed at&lt;br&gt;
adding to the awareness campaign in the aspects of soil utilization practices and the level of&lt;br&gt;
conservation awareness amongst our rural farmers who are responsible for over 70 % of local&lt;br&gt;
arable field crops produce. This work is an original scholarly research/ inquiry based on&lt;br&gt;
review of related pedagogic and didactic materials as well as observations in visits to farming&lt;br&gt;
communities. The results reveal soil degrading practices and low level of conservation&lt;br&gt;
awareness resulting from poor education (literally and practically) by government and /or&lt;br&gt;
private agencies occupied with sustainable development drive. The paper ends with useful&lt;br&gt;
suggestions that can impact positively on the awareness level and better practices by the rural&lt;br&gt;
farmers.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
