The aims of this study were to investigate the temporal variations of soil detachment rate under different land uses and to further identify the potential factors causing the change in detachment rate in the Loess Plateau. Undisturbed soil samples were collected in the fields of arable land (millet, soybean, corn, and potato), grassland, shrub land, wasteland, and woodland and tested in a laboratory flume under a constant hydraulic condition. Measurements from mid-April to October, 2006, results and discussion. The major factors responsible for the temporal variation of soil detachment were tillage operations, soil consolidation, and root growth. The impact of root density was inconclusive in this study
