Effects of agricultural land use on surface runoff and erosion were studied in a Mediterranean area with viticulture and fruit culture (Ouvèze river basin, France). Farming has to cope with erosion on fields, quick removal of rain for crops, erosion along field boundaries and tractor roads, and overflowing of silted-up ditches. Aspects of agricultural land use examined are tillage and traffic operations, their interaction with intra-annual variations in plant cover and rainfall, and the role of linear elements in the agricultural landscape (such as ditches, field boundaries, tractor roads, wheel tracks and furrows). - (AGD)
