Soil loss by water erosion in areas under maize and jack beans intercropped and monocultures

Abstract: Adequate soil management can create favorable conditions to reduce erosion and water runoff, consequently increase water soil recharge. Among management systems intercropping is highly used, especially for medium and small farmers. It is a system where two or more crops with different architectures and vegetative cycles are explored simultaneously at the same location. This research investigated the effects of maize intercropped with jack bean on soil losses due to water erosion, estimate C factor of Universal… Show more

“…With this technique, it is possible to achieve greater production of vegetal biomass to cover the soil Ceccon et al, 2013;Crusciol et al, 2013), and it also allows the establishment of pastures for livestock Fisher et al, 2012;Borghi et al, 2013). This technique can provide many benefits for the soil-plant system, such as reducing soil loss by erosion (Montenegro et al, 2013;Lima et al, 2014), a reduction in the occurrence of weeds (Amossé et al, 2013;Scopel et al, 2013) and the maintenance of a vegetated area, allowing for greater nutrient cycling and the reduction of nutrient loss in the off-season (Fraser et al, 2013;Hashemi et al, 2013).…”

“…In Brazil, despite extensive research on water and soil loss (Mannigel et al, 2002;Cogo et al, 2003;Beutler et al, 2003;Brito et al, 2005;Amorim et al, 2010;Lima et al, 2014), few studies address this subject in integrated systems, e.g., crop, livestock, and forest integration systems. Additionally, regions of agricultural expansion, such as the area of transition between the Amazon and Cerrado (Brazilian tropical savanna) biomes, in the state of Mato Grosso, require a better understanding of the aspects related to water and soil losses in different settings of soil uses and ground covers.…”

“…This fact suggests that fertilization in pre-installed systems, even if well managed, can increase nutrient losses. However, as noted by other authors (BEZERRA; CANTALICE, 2006;LIMA et al, 2014), it is expected that more developed are the crops, the more protected will be the soils, and the lesser will be the losses by water erosion.…”

“…However, in general, lower losses were obtained for systems that maintain the vegetation cover for longer periods and with less mobilization of the soil. In this sense, conservation systems have stood out as effective strategies for sustainable development, especially in tropical regions, such as Brazil, promoting lower soil, water, nutrients, and SOM losses when compared with more intensive systems (CAIRES et al, 2006;LEITE, et al, 2009;PANACHUKI et al, 2011;LIMA et al, 2014).…”
