In the Chinese Loess Plateau, 28 field rainfall simulations were carried on loamy soils under different management practices, namely conventional tillage (CT), no till with mulch (NTM), reduced tillage (RT), subsoiling with mulch (SSM), subsoiling without mulch (SS), and 2 crops per year (TC), to investigate 1) the effects of different soil management practices on runoff sediment and 2) the temporal change of runoff discharge rate and sediment concentration under different initial soil moisture conditions and rainfall intensity. The results show that NTM is the most favorable tillage practices in terms of soil and wat conservation in the Chinese Loess Plateau. SSM can be regarded as a promising measure to improve soil and water conservation considering its beneficial effect on winter wheat yield
