Success stories about maize
trash-line in reducing surface soil erosion were discussed with farmers.
Farmers welcomed the idea and took initiatives. Height of the bund riser
behind the maize trash-line was 0.5m after two maize harvest seasons.
Maize trash-line along the contour lines was observed to not be very
stable/strong. Planting of hedgerow legume shrubs along trash-lines in
slopping upland fields to reduce erosion of topsoil has proven effective.
