Abstract

Methods of agricultural development on steep slopes in Korea (contour farming, bench terracing and semi-bench terracing) are evaluated. Runoff and erosion plot results are discussed and a design criteria proposed for relating slope length to gradient so that annual soil loss will not be excessive.
