Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _......Ti-ctdoy, May 30, 1973 THE LE1HBRIDGE HERAt.D Waler erosion Now is the time to fake nole ol water erosion problems on Hand. Channels, caused by ivater nmoff, arc very tvident jr. t.lie spring on many surnnier- f allow fields before the chan- nels are covered by Ullage op- erations. According to Soil Conserva- tionist Bill Toews, erosion prob- lems can be eliminated by the Kame type of land management as that recommended for con- serving winter and spring mois- litre. A modified form of contour cropping is one of these man- agement practices. This meth- od of erosion control generally entails tilling tbe field along a tlope rather than up and down it. In the fall the last tillage op- eration carried out on either stubble or summerfallow should ridge the soil surface at right angles to the slope to hold winter and spring moisture. In those cases where the channels have become so large (hat they have formed gullies, ihc best course of action is to p-ass them down. This recom- mendation also applied to po- lenlial gullies. Mr. Toews reports that finan- cial assistance is available for irrtain erosion projects through provincial agricultural Fervice board grants. Applica- fions should be made through municipal offices. Publications on erosion pre- vention and gully filling are :ivailablc from district agricul- turists The following Siotislics 1971} period.
