Abstract

Application of the principle of soil loss tolerance in the Tugela River Basin reveals that various areas are subjected to severe stress. Maps indicating areas with soil loss of more than 10 t/ha/yr| areas with a soil loss higher than its allocated soil loss tolerance limits| and soil loss as a percentage of its T-values are included. These maps reveal startling facts, and emphasize the need for swift action in order to combat the problem of soil erosion in the area
