Abstract

Easily assessable soil erosion indicators to monitor the cumulative effect of erosion between tillage/weeding and harvesting called erosing clods, flow surfaces, pre-rills, and rills were surveyed directly after the 1995 rainy season in the Taita Taveta district of Kenya, to assessed the utility of each indicator. Their incidences were modeled using CPA. In the area, 70 maize plots in 11 map units, having considerable variation in altitude, land cover, rainfall, and geomorphology, were surveyed. It is concluded that the eroding clods indicator relates better to soil erodibility than to soil loss
