Soil Conservation



Soil is indispensable for the production of food. Large areas of agricultural lands are being threatened. The agricultural engineer's know-how is essential for the planning and design of:

  • conservation and reclaiming structures;
  • systems for the discharge of flood water;
  • contour and other appropriate cultivation systems to safeguard vulnerable, agricultural lands against erosion; and
  • adapted farming practices to enhance soil conservation
