Management of hilly lands through hedgerows and alley cropping technique


Contour Jakarta 8(1): 18-24
Management of hilly lands through hedgerows and alley cropping technique
A study carried out in the Philippines demonstrated the potential of hedgerows (ipil-ipil (Leucaena diversifolia), kakawate guinea grass and cogon and of alley cropping in controlling erosion and sustaining crop productivity. Surface runoff and soil loss were greatest under traditional farming, amounting to 5172 msuperscript 3/ha and 22 t/ha, respectively. Hedgerows and alley cropping reduced these by 58 and 65%, respectively. Best results were obtained with a grass-legume combination.
