What Are the Effects of Overgrazing?

Answer

The major impact of overgrazing is desertification. When a piece of land is overgrazed, the nutritional capacity of that piece of land is reduced, thus its inability to sustain plant life. The absence of plant life exposes the soil to various agents of erosion slowly turning the piece of land infertile.
