Soil conservation is a set of farming techniques and practices to avoid degradation, erosion and depletion in particular. Soil conservation methods target long-term use with a thought of the future. By taking proper and timely actions, farmers boost the performance of their fields for the years to come.
Soil and water conservation structures include all mechanical or structural measures that control the velocity of surface runoff and thus minimize soil erosion and retain water where it is needed. They usually consist of engineering works involving physical structures, made of earth, stones, masonry, brushwood or other material for the construction of earthworks such as terraces, check dams, and water diversions, which reduce the effects of slope length and angle
Our interventions include the following Activities
|1||Field Assessment||Obtain proper knowledge of the land resource useMonitor fields and detect critical zonesControl and estimate the efficiency of applied soil conservation techniques||Report|
|2||Design of SWC Structures||Designed to either conserve water or to safely discharge it away. Suitability of SWC structure depends on: Climate and the need to retain or discharge the runoff.Farm sizes. Soil characteristics (texture, drainage, and depth).Availability of an outlet or waterway. Labor availability and cost.The adequacy of existing agronomic or vegetative conservation measures||Technical drawings & Bill of Quantities|
|3||Implementation||Offer Technical Supervision during implementation||Completed project|
