Name two states where land degradation is caused by overgrazing.
Overgrazing refers to the excessive grazing of farm animals like cattle,sheep,horses and goats. Overgrazing is a major cause of land degradation because animals tear up roots along with the shoots and leaves of grasses on fertile pastures and leave the land barren and prone to erosion by wind and water. Two states in India which are affected by overgrazing are Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.
