Agroforestry is a land use management system in which trees or shrubs are grown around or among crops or pastureland. This diversification of the farming system initiates an agroecological succession, like that in natural ecosystems, and so starts a chain of events that enhance the functionality and sustainability of the farming system.

The Hill Country of Central Texas, USA, is undergoing rapid socioeconomic development, but environmental management of this region is hampered by misconceptions about local bedrock, soils. Still other soils are sandy and well drained and these would make a poor bottom for a pond or reservoir.

It should be the goal of a land use planner, engineer, landowner, or developer to match the use of the land with the soil type.

An important reference in helping to make such decisions on land use is the soil survey. Soils and regional land use The steeper hill country to the west is a mosaic of ash-derived soils on rolling and moderate slopes, and mudstone-derived soils on steep slopes where the ash has been washed off.

Combined with intensive development of hill slopes and hill land for housing, recreation, tourism, agriculture, highway and dam construction, and other human induced land use changes, the exposure.

Chapters’ topics are various, ranging from irrigation practices to soil nutrient, land use changes or tillage methodologies. The book is subdivided into fourteen chapters, sorted in four sections, grouping different facets of the topic: introductive case studies, erosion management in vineyards, soil erosion issue in dry environments, and erosion control practices.

The lack of land use policies in rural areas throughout Texas provides unique problems to governmental and independent organizations that attempt to evaluate land use changes over time. This is especially problematic in the Texas Hill Country a region experiencing which is transitioning from a rural to suburban landscape.

Thirty-nine soils are identified and grouped into land systems. The soil pairs described are from lowland Southland and the medium-altitude high country of inland South Canterbury (the Mackenzie hill country as defined by McIntosh and Hunter ()). The Southland syncline in the far south of the South Island is formed from Triassic and Jurassic tuffaceous greywacke rocks (Wood,McKellar and Speden, ).

Abstract. Soil erosion and surface runoff have always been problems concomitant with intensive agricultural land use in hilly areas. These problems can be exacerbated by soil and geology, as is the case in the hill country of South-Limburg (The Netherlands), where soils developed on loess are especially vulnerable to surface runoff and soil erosion.

Trimble illustrates how a simple landscape disturbance, generated in this case by agriculture, can spread an astonishing variety of altered hydrologic and sedimentation processes throughout a drainage basin.

1. Soil conservation: There is a clear need for continued investment in soil conservation, particularly for hillside soils and areas where mechanized tillage has become more n prevention strategies should focus on barriers with low capital and labor investment (e.g., live barriers) as well as improved management of fallow plots (e.g., cover cropping).

Although there is no cure, research has indicated that acidic soils can inhibit the fungus.
