Abstract:
In conclusion, it should be emphasized again that a successful program of erosion control is going to call definitely for battling for more grass, more dense soil-stabilizing crops, and better adjustment of farm procedures to the physical characteristics of the land. The agronomist must hold a key position in this battle. It is hoped that he will distribute his forces so as to push the line of attack to every position needing attention.
