Abstract
Since the publication of a description of the camberbed system of cultivation of vlei soils (Robinson et at. 1955), a considerable area of vlei land has been treated in this way, and the experience gained brought out points which required further investigation. Observations during the past two years have shown that the run-off from camber beds can be very high, and it is clear that before the system is put into operation the area should be examined to see if the run-off can be safely discharged into protected drainage ways without risk of damage to roads, culverts, cultivated land etc.
