The methods and case studies of land consolidation planning on paddy fields in steep sloping areas



The methods and case studies of land consolidation planning on paddy fields in steep sloping areas



Journal of the Faculty of Agriculture, Shinshu University 30(2): 125-169



Methods of consolidating land on steep slopes is discussed with reference to the problems resulting from flat land farming techniques applied to paddy fields around mountainous villages in Japan. A 5-part approach to land consolidation planning in steeply sloping areas is presented: paddy field classification; methods of farmer's participation and support; adoption of contour farming; re-arrangement of lots to improve safety; and formation of levee slopes to improve ease of weeding.
