Abstract

MANY things are blamed for soil erosion—including storms, fires, cost-price squeezes, ploughing downhill and rabbits. But the basic factor is the risk involved in the way the land is used.

It is therefore vital that everyone—not only farmers—should begin their thinking about soil conservation from the land use aspect (of which special practices such as contouring, are a small though spectacular part.)
