      Crop production, animal husbandry and growing grazing fields are the possibilities of checking erosion. The Coon Creek Watershed Project, in southwestern Wisconsin, was the first of many watershed-based projects Soil conservation book to demonstrate soil conservation practices to farmers. Problems directly connected with hydrology, namely infiltration, evaporation and transpiration Chapter 3runoff and surface flow Chapter 4 are well-explained in details and illustrations. The book is very helpful in understanding the problems, solutions and technicalities involved in conservation agricultural engineering. The concern about global food security in relation to soil erosion and strategies for confronting the remaining problems in soil management and conservation are specifically addressed.
