Abstract
The disastrous effects of excessive erosion due to poor and incorrect farming practices have been stressed over a very long period by numerous workers interested in this subject. Staples recorded the results from a run-off and soil erosion experiment carried out at Mpwapwa in Central Tanganyika in the 1933, 1935 and 1938 annual reports of the Department of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry. The experimental plots were laid out near the Mpwapwa Veterinary Laboratory on red sandy loam soil typical of the area and are situated on a uniform 6.6 per cent slope.
