Question

Question 49
Why is step farming common in hills?


Solution

Step farming is a common preventive measure for soil erosion caused due to rainwater and strong winds. Hence step farming is common in hills as it provides a physical barrier to soil erosion by water. Steps are made in the mountains in order to slow down the speed of the rainwater preventing the damage to the crops.
