Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Mov 30, 1973 THE LE1HBRIDGE HERALD 17 Wafer erosion Tvow is (.lie time to fjiko nole o' walxT erosion problems on Jiiiid. Clinmiuls, caused by water runoff, arc very evident in Hie .spring on many siunnier- fjillow fields before Uio clinn- nc-Ls arc covered by Ullage op- t-rn Lions. According to Soil Conserva- tionist Bill Toews, erosion prob- lems can be eliminated by the Kamo type of land management as that recommended for con- serving winter and spring mois- ture. A modified form of contour cropping is one of these man- agement practices. This meth- od of erosion control generally entails tilling the field along a slope rather than up and down it. In the fall the last Ullage op- eration carried wit on either Blubhle or summerfaJlow should ridge the soil surface at right angles to the slope to hold and spring moisture. In those cases where the channels have become so large dial they have formed gullies, ihc best course of action is to (Trass them clown. This recom- mendation also applied to po- tential gullies. Mr. Tocws reports that finan- ri.'il assistance is available for 1't.Tl.ain erosion projects through provincial agricultural KTvice board grants. Applica- tions should he made through municipal offices. 1 'ublical ions on erosion pre- vent ion and gully filling are Available from district agricul- turists The following Sioiislic.s 1971) period, ll h interesting appeared due to ihe "urban In Albtrio overage FARM NUMDERS IW CANADA Conarjo labfe iifuslrufes (he reduction in ihc number Q{ Conacfian farms in (he five yoar to nole ihs amount of farm land, especially in Ontario ond Quebec, thai has simply dis farm size has increased from 705.5 ocrei in 1966, to 789.6 acres in 1971.
