Wht are different methods of soil conservation?

Asked by manishasain28 | 06 May, 2018, 01:09: PM
Expert Answer
Soil can be conserved in the following ways:
Mulching:An uncovered piece of land is covered with straw or any other layer of organic matter. This method helps the soil to retain moisture.
Contour Barriers:Barriers along the contours are made by growing grass or by putting stones to help in preventing soil erosion.
Terrace Farming: It is the construction of terraces or flat steps on steep slopes. Terrace farming helps in reducing surface runoff water and prevents soil erosion.
Contour Ploughing:Land is ploughed parallel to the contour of a hillslope. This makes a natural barrier for water to flow down the slope.
Shelter Belts:Trees are planted in straight rows to check the movement of winds. It prevents soil erosion.
