Soil conservation necessary for nation's security

Creator: Aquino, Dionisio I.

Language: English

Subject: Soil conservation--Philippines; Agriculture--Philippines

Abstract: The soil conservation may consists of different methods, these are strip cropping, farming terrace to reduce erosion, contour plowing, and microbiological conservation of soil. In addition to preventing soil losses, micro-organisms can be made, with careful and scientific crop rotation and soil management, to increase the fertility of the soil. The results of studies conducted in the College of Agriculture on soil samples collected from typical areas of the Philippines showed that unless our methods of farming systems are modified or changed sooner or later the production of crops will be limited owing to exhaustion of plant-food materials due primarily to excessive erosion.

Ordinarily, seedlings are raised in a seedbed for a period of 4 to 6 weeks In transplanting, the bigger seedlings should be pulled up first-this is to be done after the seedbed has been thoroughly watered. Regular watering and weeding ore necessary during the first two months of growth. If available, give the young plant a side dressing of ammonium sulphate at the rate of about 200 kilograms per hectare during the first month.
