ABSTRACT Water erosion is a major factor degrading soils of the Nigerian semi-arid ecoregions, and making agriculture less sustainable. For example, soil erosion in the Northern Guinea savanna ecozones of Nigeria is prominent in cultivated areas during the early part of the rain-fed crop production season, when most soil surfaces are bare. In order to estimate the magnitude and timing of soil loss from cultivated lands. Selected herbaceous legumes (Macrotyloma uniflorum, Stylosanthes hamata and… CONTINUE READING
