1. 01-02-2011 Volume 3 takes the subject of better land husbandry further. The book first points out the sort of things which have been, and are being used, but are failing to deliver what is required. It then explains the causes of erosion, the theory and practice of soil and water conservation, and practical...
  2. 01-12-1995 Mountain agriculture has attracted attention both for its complex adaptation to particular circumstances, and for its marginality and instability in a changing world. Irrigation plays a range of roles in mountain farming systems and their dynamics or change. Hill Irrigation examines the...
  3. 20-01-2005 Sloping Agricultural Land Technology (SALT) has made steep worthless lands usable. This is a practice valuable to the tribal community. They are learning to stabilize topsoil with the proper selection of species. They can maintain their ancestral lands without having to destroy them through...

  5. 19-10-1999 Salt licks can provide the minerals that are often lacking, such as phosphorus, sodium, calcium and magnesium. Salt licks can be purchased to improve production, but limited cash and/or proximity to a town or village may prohibit doing so regularly. It is possible, however, to make your own salt...
  6. 20-07-2008 This method is designed to allow crops to be grown even onsteep hillsides with minimal erosion while at the same timeincreasing soil fertility and providing fodder for livestock.Rather than controlling erosion with rock terraces or ditches, SALT relies on rows of vegetation.
  7. This animation explains a method to test if your grain has a low enough moisture level for you to store it. This technique utilizes salt to help determine the moisture level in your grain. Scientific Animations Without Borders (SAWBO) is a university based program. SAWBO transforms extension...
  8. 03-10-2017 In this workshop, I will describe and diagram the common sloping land corn and rice farming system. I will then identify leverage points within the system and how development workers can work with farmers to make these systems more sustainable.
  9. 05-10-2017 The Sloping Agriculture Land Technologies (SALT) were developed in the Philippines more than 30 years ago. They were developed with local farmers incorporating some key principles for farming the uplands in the humid tropics such as soil erosion control, fertility management through use of plant...
  10. Access Agriculture Training Video On sloping land, rainwater washes away the fertile soil and cassava yields will quickly decline. By reducing soil erosion and building up a healthy soil, you will continue to have a good cassava harvest for many years. Available languages Bambara English French...
