Abstract
Much is written nowadays in agricultural journals about the combating of soil erosion, both in regard to the urgency for it, and on methods. Rather little, comparatively, is said about the research background of soil conservation. Yet behind our present knowledge of the processes of accelerated erosion, and supporting what has been achieved in successful Remedial measures, lies a mass of careful observation in the field in many countries. Arising out of this, and aimed at clarifying many questions of principle or of detail, a great deal of organized research has been started and is already fruitful. Besides these more general inquiries, investigation of the particular circumstances precedes, or should Precede, each local soil conservation programme, as a necessary preparatory stage before actual measures are undertaken.
