This paper examines the influence of plant cover and land use on slope-channel decoupling in the Stara Rzeka Stream catchment and its subcatchment Dworski Potok Stream. The results show that transport and export of the material on the slopes depend on the morphology of the slope and on the agricultural use of the area. The mosaic of fields which are used differently makes the soil wash process very intensive only if the slopes are ploughed and unprotected by a dense cover of vegetation. Footslope areas and flat valley bottoms covered with grass function as a barrier separating the slope and the river bed
