WOCAT National Book

Lianda Lötter, Liesl D. Stronkhorst & Hendrik J. Smith (2009)

In South Africa, sustainable land use and management is paramount as the country’s agricultural natural resources are diverse, complex and vulnerable to degradation. To realise sustainable agricultural production and development, an agro-ecosystem-specific approach entailing soil, water and nutrient conservation agriculture practices is imperative. This LADA report provides a selection of successful soil and water  conservation technologies and approaches collected as part of the World Overview of Conservation Approaches and Technologies (WOCAT)  Programme in South Africa.
