Abstract
In East Africa, tea is usually grown on land of undulating topography formerly covered with primary or secondary forest. After forest clearance, land is very vulnerable to soil erosion until the newly planted tea has an established canopy cover; this paper reports measurements of soil erosion recorded on a soil conservation experiment designed to give quantitative information on runoff and soil erosion from a tea field.
