Agronomic Measures - Ridges and furrows
Cotton Cultivation Under Ridges and Furrows in Red Soil Maize crop cultivated under Ridges and Furrows in black soils


Ridges and furrows thus formed act as continuous barrier to the free movement of water downwards thus provides more infiltration time. Hence, the removal of soil along with nutrients is checked to a greater extent leading to increment in soil fertility and crop yield. ridges and furrows is one of the the various in situ soil and water conservation methods for black and red soils cause an increase of up to 15 per cent in crop yields.
