Abstract:

The paper summarizes research results of the use of different types of grasses; their use as important and effective vegetative hedge that when grown on the contour significantly reduces the flow of sediment from eroding sites and reduces runoff, both simultaneously, and at a low cost, compared to more traditional engineered practices. Various grasses have unique characteristics and capability to reduce run off, bind soil at slope over a wide range of site conditions. These grasses require minimum maintenance and mostly are resistant to pests and diseases. These are also used as earth embankments, drainage lines, roads etc. The various soil and water conservation practices are improved through the use of various Agrostological measures especially in hill agriculture.
