Proportion of Hh Structural Conservation Method 2012
Soil fertility in itself is not seen as a principal environmental risk, compared to hurricanes, flooding, or earthquakes. Across the region, less than half of plots are being actively managed for soil fertility; the most common form of soil fertility management is the use of crop residues, at over a quarter of all parcels. In order to increase yields, farmers will need to recognize the problems of soil erosion and soil fertility constraints. On the sloping lands, the use of trees and grasses as vegetative strips is highly recommended to control erosion, begin to stabilize the slopes, and build up soil organic matter.
