Description

For years, the Yellow River has carried very large volume of mud and sand -- the result of soil erosion upstream. Now a conservation farming is showing farmers how to improve soil quality and reduce soil loss. Several conservation methods are being promoted, including the use of mulch on farm lands and growing cover crops. Farmers and downstream communities can already see the benefits.
