Soil Conservation is a key text not only for agricultural engineers, but also for students of agricultural forestry, geography, geology and ecology - indeed all those concerned with soil erosion. This new and fully revised edition of Norman Hudson's standard work gives information on recent advances, including the greater emphasis on sound land use and farming methods, the importance of involving the farmer at all stages, the need for low-cost, low-labour methods; shows how research, theory and practice can be applied in the developing countries; and presents the engineering approach to soil conservation in a simple, common-sense way.
The text reflects the postgraduate course in soil conservation at Silsoe College, as taught to students from over 40 different countries. The result is a teaching text which will be of use in all countries where soil conservation is a major consideration in agricultural development.
