It's hard to keep soil in place on hilly ground.

The soil health is one of the most important issues that farmers and ranchers face today as they are called upon to feed a growing population in the world.  Although the editorial content of mainstream agricultural publications are paying more attention to this topic, and the National Conservation Research Service continues to offer information about soil conservation, understanding how to apply conservation practices is often difficult to comprehend.  To help people understand this topic better, the Organic Farming Research Foundation is offering a number of educational publications for download that are great resources.
