Soil conservation techniques for hillside farms: Traditional Honduran hill side farming techniques and resulting problems

Soil conservation techniques for hillside farms: Soil conservation strategies: Strategies in cultivation systems characterized by extensive soil disturbance: Terraces (individual, discontinuous narrow, and continuous bench terraces)

In order to avoid problems of erosion at the site of emptying and to reduce the speed of watershed runoff following rains; soil conservation...

Oh my goodness...I am in LOVE with this experiment idea!!!!! I can't wait until Earth Day and our Lorax unit!!!! :-)

Possible school experiment to show importance of wetlands/riparian zones! This shows the importance of plants in our soil. Plants like trees and grasses help purify ground water. Without them the ground water gets polluted and harder to clean and drink.

Good place to start... Love your soil and it will love you back.

Soil- It's more than just dirt! This is a pretty simplistic view of soil, with parent material and texture triangle being over-simplified.

Students get about soil conservation learning about the dust bowl, then design a farm using soil conservation measures. Students learn about contour plowing, crop rotation, alley cropping, wind breaks, increasing fertility, and much more. Built-in quizzes, video links, and much more are provided. Enjoy!
