ABSTRACT Several soil conservation practices are used to reduce water erosion and ensure sustainable agriculture.

We hypothesized that intercropping of corn and jack-bean increases soil cover and reduce soil erosion by water in comparison to monocropping. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of different crop systems on soil cover and […]
