Soil Erosion & Soil Conservation Measures

Soil Erosion & Soil Conservation Measures: What is Soil? What is Soil Erosion? Causes of Soil Erosion: There are two types of agents which cause soil erosion: climatic agents and biotic agents. Climatic Agents: Water and wind are the climatic agents of soil erosion. Water Erosion: Sands and silt are the soils which are more prone to water erosion. Water induced soil erosion is of the following types: Sheet Erosion: Rill Erosion: Gully Erosion: Slip Erosion: Stream Bank Erosion: Wind Erosion: Wind erosion occurs in arid and semi-arid areas. Wind erosion is responsible for the following three types of soil … Continue reading Soil Erosion & Soil Conservation Measures
