Construction of Silt Pits and Contour Bunds

Silt pits are trenches of about 120 cm length, 45 cm width and 60 cm depth taken along the contour at suitable intervals to check erosion and to conserve water. Pits can be taken at the rate of 150-250 per ha depending on the degree of slope. They are aligned in such a way that the pits in the adjacent inter-rows are in a staggered manner. Construction of stone pitched contour bunds is another method to check erosion in steep slopes.

Does the quality of seed affect scion growth?
