Balancing competing land use and live-lihood systems while at the same time protecting natural resources remains a major challenge for key productive strategy in arid and semi-arid environments, has been increasingly restricted in the process. The loss of accessible dry season grazing areas has increased stocking rates on less. Arid and Semi-Arid Environments. Arid and semi-arid lands occupy an increasingly large portion of world’s land surface. Decomposition processes in arid and semi-arid environment have some unique characteristics due to the distinct physical environment, e.g. low rainfall and relatively high solar radiation.   Semi-arid regions receive 10 to 20 inches (25 to 50 centimeters) of rain per year. Although the rocks and tectonic features underlying arid regions may not differ from other areas, the landscape is distinctive. With little vegetation and often loose surface material, erosion is the main factor in shaping the land surface.
