Locally developed control measures have been applied successfully to reduce erosion, including the benching of steep slopes, the construction of check dams and reforestation. Of particular importance is the traitment of large gullies, locally called broken hills. These have led to the disintegration of hillslopes and the deposition of colluvium and fines on the agricultural land. Gully treatment includes the stabilization of the headwalls, the containments of sediments in the gully floor zone and the reclamation of flatland below the gully mouth. Re-vegetation of the slopes is essential
