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