Print Book & E-Book. ISBN , Foreword. The value of soil is rarely appreciated because of its seemingly universal abundance. Except where covered with buildings and roads, or in rocky .

Re-vegetation Rapidly reconditioning vegetation plays a major role in the process of erosion control on gullied areas, landslides, sand dunes, road embarkments, construction sites, mine spoils or pipeline corridors, and is also necessary for replanting forest in areas cleared by patch-cutting or for covering land cleared of forest in favour of agriculture.

Soil management:[ edit ] Is concerned with ways of preparing the soil to improve its structure so that it is more resistant to erosion and to promote plant growth. Organic content Applying organic matter as a way of achieving and maintaining soil fertility which effects an improved the cohesiveness of the soil, an increased water retention capacity and a stable aggregate structure.

Tillage practices Preventing or reducing soil compaction and increasing the residue cover by reducing intensity and frequency of soil management operations and introducing coservation, contour, strip, mulch, or minimum tillage.

Drainage Reducing soil moisture content, runoff and therefore erosion on heavy clay soils by means of subsurface mole or pipe drainage and subsoiling. Soil stabilizers Improving soil structure by applying soil conditioners which may take the form of polyvalent salts such as gypsum, which bring about flocculation of clay particles, organic by-products or synthetic polymers, which both bind the soil particles into aggregates.

1. Introduction

Mechanical methods:[ edit ] Depend on manipulating the surface topography to control the flow of water and air and often involve engineering structures. Contour bunds Contour bunds Building earth banks of 1.

Terraces Terraces Installing earth embankments constructed across the slope to intercept surface runoff retention terraces , convey it to a stable outlet an a non-erosive velocity and shorten slope length diversion and bench terraces. Buffer strips along grassed thalweg Waterways Conveying runoff at a non-erosive velocity to a siutable disposal point by means of a system of diversion channels, terrace channels or grass waterways, which all have to be carefully dimensioned in order to provide sufficient capacity to convey the peak runoff from a storm with at least a ten-year return peroiod.

Temporary measures Installing silt fences, burlap rolls, straw bales and sedimentation ponds as temporary measures for erosion control required on construction sites, road banks and pipeline corridors until a soil protecting vegetation cover has been established.

Thanks to clear maps and diagrams, and above all a wealth of well documented photographs, we can all grasp the painful dimension of what in less able hands would be a lifeless tale of mud and dereliction. Cover crops Cover crops between crop rows Planting quickly growing crops, which establish an early canopy cover, are aggressive to suppress weeds, and posess a deep root system to improve the macroporosity of the soil as conservation measure during the off season or as ground protection under trees.

Additionally, the declining productivity of existing eroded cropland must be evaluated in terms of a decreasing agricultural land base as more and more agricultural lands are converted to other uses.
