Effect of soil conservation measures on sediment yield at Chattar Kalas (AJK)

Effect of soil conservation measures on sediment yield at Chattar Kalas (AJK)

Pakistan Journal of Forestry 43(4): 204-206

A study was conducted to evaluate the effect of soil conservation measures (imposed in 1989-90) on sediment yield in three catchments at Chattar Kalas, Azad Jammu and Kashmir. One heavily grazed and denuded catchment was treated with contour bunds for surface erosion control and check dams for channel erosion control.
