Abstract

This paper aims to contribute to an improved understanding of tillage erosion on terraces and contour strips by presenting both a methodology for using caesium-137 measurements for the quantitative assessment of medium-term tillage erosion and the results of applying this method in 3 contrasting environments (Yanting, in Sichuan Province, China; Ha Sofonia in Lesotho, and Chinamora in Zimbabwe)
