332 pages, hardbound
This book examines successful agricultural use of hillslopes and displays conservation schemes that can be incorporated into agricultural development programs in both developed and developing countries.
This collection is based on a workshop held in Taiwan in1989 called, “Conservation Farming on Hillslopes.” Taiwan’s success should be carefully examined and executed in other settings because food shortages are causing marginal land to be cultivated across the globe. This cultivation requires careful planning and implementation to be successful. Development of Conservation Farming on Hillslopes records Taiwan’s success and offers suggestions of how to implement similar techniques in other countries.
