Abstract

Though it is generally realised that ploughed firebreaks are an erosion hazard, many farmers are forced to use the plough due to the lack of other more suitable machinery, or due to the presence of to much trash for a tyne implement to handle. Erosion damage is commonly caused by concentration of water down a long furrow and if this flow can be interrupted and diverted the hazard is not so great.
