Anti-erosion grassing is applied on areas with a large slope – from 10 to 15 °. Belts of perennial grass fodder are sown every 50-100 m to limit surface runoff. Other crops are sown between them. The belts are in the direction of the horizontals, perpendicular to the slope.
The width of the grass strips is 6-8 m, and the distance between them varies from 20 to 80 m. The width of the strips and the distance between them are determined by the length and slope of the slope, the anti-erosion resistance of the soil, the type and type of crops grown. Grassing is done with suitable perennial grasses or mixtures of them. Grass buffer strips have a high anti-erosion and environmental effect. They retain a large part of the surface runoff formed above them. At the same time they provide good shelter for some species of wild animals and birds during the periods when the area is cleared of vegetation or various technological operations are carried out such as plowing, fertilizing and spraying with herbicides, hoeing, harvesting, etc.
