Soil conservation is the prevention of loss of the top most layer of the soil from erosion or prevention of reduced fertility caused by over usage, acidification, salinization or other chemical soil contamination.. Slash-and-burn and other unsustainable methods of subsistence farming are practiced in some lesser developed areas. A sequel to the deforestation is typically large scale erosion.

Many New Mexico soils naturally have a native calcium carbonate content. A simple test for its presence is to pour a small amount of vinegar (or other weak acid) on the soil or on samples from different depths. If the soil effervesces (bubbles), it most likely contains enough soil lime to keep the soil pH.
