  Mulching
 

Surface mulches are used to prevent soil from blowing and being washed away, reduce evaporation, increase infiltration, keep down weeds, improve soil structure and eventually to increase crop yields.

 


Inter-culture kills weeds and produces 5 to 7cm thick soil mulch, which reduce evaporation from the topsoil. It also breaks the surface crust, which forms after each downpour. Among the legumes cowpea and mung proved to be important crops for providing a good cover for the land during the rainy season.
