Abstract

Indigenous soil and water conservation practices of farmers provide considerable information on biophysical performances in the field, economic impacts on farm households, and constraints on the adoption or non-adoption of new strategies. Data in paper were collected in field study in the Transition Zone in Tiraque Province, Cochabamba Department, Bolivia. There piles of stones and boundary bunds are traditional practices used to clear stones before the cultivation of steep stony land. Why farmers there are reluctant to use stone-faced terraces is discussed. - (SLD)
