Analysis of the Physical Access routes to the Property Accessibility of a property is essential in the identification of the land use type that can be suitable for that particular property. This task involved identifying the roads and determining their conditions to ascertain the transportation means that can be used to get to the property. The purpose of this is to ensure that the land use type says agriculture can be carried out efficiently. The products can be transported to the market for processing (Mitchell, 2015). Analyze the Terrain of the Land The task was intended to gather primary and secondary data on the physical properties of the land. Is the land sloppy and hilly? Or it is a plain land. Under the same task, I identified the environmental elements taking place in the soil such as erosion and how it can affect the choice of the land use type. Examine the Soil and its Suitability The soil type plays a significant role in influencing the type of land use. Some soils are infertile and thus suitable for construction while there are fertile soils that act as a habitat for animals and therefore that kind of biodiversity should not be destroyed by construction projects

NATURAL RESOURCE AND ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT 4 ( Ffolliott , 2012). The purpose of this task is to identify the suitable land use but with close consideration to the environmental aspects of the subject property. Section 2: The Potential Use of the Property and Facilities The 150-acre property is open to any suitable and sustainable uses. To start with, the meadow can be used for agricultural purposes and food production to be specific. The University can identify a food crop, for example, corns or wheat and conduct a large scale farming of that particular food crop. Since the University is a center for research and studies, it will identify the modern methods of agriculture that emphasize soil sustainability (Deal, 2017). For instance, the farming should take place across the terrain to prevent rainwater from sweeping away the soil nutrients when erosions take place (Deal, 2017). This will ensure that the soil is always fertile and thus reduce the need to use fertilizers and chemicals that make the land barren. Similarly, the farming can be supported by water from the stream through irrigation. Irrigation helps in reclaiming of dry places and thus making it suitable for production. When the food is processed and sold to consumers, then the University will receive finances that it can use for development and expansion projects (Deal, 2017).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
