Soil Erosion And Some Means For Its Control, R. Burnell Held, Melvin G. Blase, John F. Timmons

Special Report

The control of soil erosion on the many farms where it is still a problem would not be difficult if it required only an understanding of the critical physical relationships between climate, topography, plant cover, water and soil as well as an ability to prescribe the proper engineering and agronomic measures for each situation. Soil losses, when greatly in excess of those produced by natural geological processes, result from the use of particular farming practices and cropping systems. While an understanding of the physical conditions which produce this erosion is essential, so is an understanding of the reasons that farmers ...

Special Report

Agriculture is a unique industry—made up of millions of individual firms, each an individual business with its own manager. Many of these also are basically family and living units. The physical products of agriculture are used primarily for food and direct human consumption, and many are necessary for life itself. Once these needs are met, however, other uses for the products of agriculture that will yield favorable prices to farmers seem limited. These and other unique characteristics of agriculture cause it to be beset with problems not encountered by all industries.
