Abstract
In areas where people have destroyed natural vegetation in order to have new arable land, soil degradation on slopes is a major problem in agriculture. ~are slopes, deprived from their protective cover, are becoming unstable when exposed to the unhampered impact of rainfall and soil erosion will spread fast. The humus-rich topsoil will t.• washed away, which usually results in a strong~ decline of soil fertility and crop yields as organic matter, particularly in red tropical soils, plays a vital role in the plant nutrient cycle.
