Abstract

In the páramo belt of the Venezuelan Andes, a long fallow agriculture is practiced to cultivate potatoes and cereals. Total rainfall, surface runoff, soil moisture, drainage, and soil loss were measured for 2 years on 10 plots cropped with potatoes and on two successional plots with fallow periods of 1 and 15 years, and the A. found that runoff and soil loss, after a few months of fallow, were less on the fallow plots. - (SLD)
