Abstract

Control of degradation of soil by water erosion under a dry-Mediterranean climate has been directed in this work towards reduction of surface runoff and the increase of infiltration by the effect of application on soil of a superficial layer of dry anaerobic sludge (9 kg/m^). Twelve erosion plots of 1.5 x 10 m^ were prepared on a hillslope with South orientation and slope of 17% at Pedralba (Valencia, SE of Spain) and two treatments (surface amended and control) were set up in a block with 6 random repli
