Erodibility of soil and organic matter : independence of organic matter resistance to interrill erosion

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In this paper, initial results from a series of interrill erosion experiments conducted on the enrichment of organic matter are reported. Two intensely farmed silts from Devon, UK, and the Eifel region, Germany, were subjected to artificial rainfall. The texture of the two soils is almost identical, while organic matter content and aggregate stability, and thus aggregate breakdown and interrill erosion differ significantly. The design of the rainfall simulation experiments aimed at measuring organic matter enrichment in different initial soil conditions, both immediately after tillage and with progressive crusting
