Farmers’ preference for soil and water conservation practices in central highlands of Ethiopia.

The article contains information about the traditional soil conservation practices, the reasons for intervention with traditional soil conservation technologies, the historical background of instutionalized soil conservation activities, the institutional frame work for soil conservation activities and their achievements, and the different departments and organisations for soil and water conservation as far as soil erosion in Ethiopia is concerned.

As a conclusion and recommendation, the major constraints of the past activities and the current situation including future trends were discussed.

Soil and water conservation in ethiopia

Though soil and water conservation SWC technologies have been adopted in Geshy subcatchment, their effects on soil quality were limitedly studied. The studied soils are characterized by low bulk density, slightly acidic with clay and clay loam texture. P at the bottom slope classes and terrace positions could be attributed to the erosion reduction and deposition effects of SWC measures. P deficient. Thus, integral use of both physical and biological SWC options and agronomic interventions would have paramount importance in improving soil quality for better agricultural production and productivity. Soil degradation, which involves physical, chemical, and biological degradation, is the key component of land degradation [ 2 , 3 , 4 ]. The most critical forms of soil degradation are depletion of soil quality and soil erosion by water [ 5 ].

Soil and water conservation practices in Ethiopia are very old as evidenced by the existence of traditional measures in some parts of the country. The following are.


Metrics details. Soil erosion is among the foremost causes of declining soil resources in Ethiopia, which in turn affect agricultural productivity. To limit this problem, for the last two decades in Gumara watershed, soil and water conservation measures have been practiced through free labor community mass-mobilization. However, their effect on soil fertility has not been evaluated. This study investigated the impact of implemented soil and water conservation measures on fertility improvement in the Gumara watershed.

Soil erosion decreases food production and hampers poverty reduction efforts in the highlands of eastern Africa. Although intensive efforts have been underway both to reduce sediment production and to halt land degradation since the s, erosion continues unabated and the already low crop yields are decreasing even further. Shallow soils are becoming shallower and are often abandoned, and gullies are swallowing up productive cropland. Finally, some of the lost soil fills up reservoirs and silts up downstream irrigation canals. The goal of the proposed research is to develop appropriate watershed and farmer-based erosion control practices for the Ethiopian highlands in order to replace the well minded imported and inappropriate technologies from foreign donors.

Introduction

Box , Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The purpose of this study is to examine the origin, development, and characteristics of terraces kella , plus their potentials and determinants for sustainable use in the Chencha—Dorze Belle area of southern Ethiopia. Field surveys were conducted to determine the various parameters of the indigenous terraces and in order to collect samples for radiocarbon dating. We dubbed that the terraces are a success story of fruitful environmental management over generations. Thus, a strong need is to preserve and develop this important cultural heritage and example of sustainable land use.

Лицо мужчины из мертвенно-бледного стало красным. - Вы знаете Капельку Росы? - Вытерев пот со лба рукавом халата, он собирался что-то сказать, но тут отворилась дверь в ванную. Мужчины оглянулись.

Быть может, смерть Танкадо в публичном месте была необходимостью, однако публика возникла чересчур. Халохот был вынужден скрыться, не успев обыскать убитого, найти ключ. А когда пыль осела, тело Танкадо попало в руки местной полиции.

 Кажется, чуточку дороговато, не правда. - Да уж, - застонал .

 Совершенно верно. Танкадо размахивает морковкой. - Вы видели этот алгоритм. Коммандера удивил ее вопрос.

 Конечно, - чуть слышно сказала.  - Танкадо подумал, что раз мы приостановили действие его страхового полиса, то можем приостановить и его. Постепенно она начала понимать.

    Land management practices depend on land cover and agroecology (Hurni et al.​, ), but little is known about the potential of these practices.
