Soil Erosion and Conservation in Northeast China

Channel: Agronomy Department

1:00 am - 2:00 am @ 3022 Agronomy Hall

Contour tillage, earth bank and level bench terraces were used to slow overland surface water flow and increase water infiltration time. No-till, basin-till and zonal-till are also applied to control soil erosion. Using these measure, have had a positive soil conservation effect in Northeast China. This may provide valuable information to support soil erosion control for other similar Mollisol regions.
