Students share their work orally with Location: San Marcos, CA. Soil conservation stores more of the runoff from excess rainfall in the reservoir of the soil for subsequent crop use; and this much water is kept out of streams, thereby contributing to flood reduction. Today these techniques of soil and water conservation are being prac- ticed in many countries with much benefit to great numbers of people.
