Abstract
Effective land management requires knowledge of the relationship between the present productivity of the land and its long term potential under proper management. In range management, this relationship is expressed as different classes of range condition- generally poor, medium and good. These reflect either absence of or differing levels of environmental degradation and are determined by certain indicators which are sensitive to and vary with the productive capability of the land. Botanical composition is the best indicator for detailed classifications.
