To check soil erosion,the following measures should be carried out:
2)Banning of Jhomming or Shifting Cultivation
3)Plant shelter belts perpendicular to the direction of wind.
Add a layer of mulch or brush mats. Mulches and mats will add a layer to your soil and help it retain moisture. They also promote an environment for starting and growing plants.
Mulches can be made out of grass clippings, leaves, straw, sawdust, bark chips and straw.
For hillsides and places where you fear the mulch will wash away, lay a brush mat over the area to protect the seeds.
5)Contour ploughing and Contour binding.
