Runoff and soil loss plots were established at several sites in eastern WA to examine the effect of grass sod at various stages of management. Runoff and soil loss were high on a new grass seeding. Burned grass fields had high runoff but low soil loss. The first wheat crop after grass had high runoff and soil loss due to intense tillage. Winter wheat on land with no grass history had larger runoff and soil loss than when seeded the 3rd year after plowout. Use of no-till seeding can reduce erosion during the hazard years of a grass system. Runoff was lowest in the wheat in the 3rd year after grass.

Describes the case for soil conservation in the Canadian prairies. Discusses methods to prevent erosion, the importance of grass and maintenance of soil organic matter. Mentions good references, but no citations. Several good quotes about soil conservation.

Wheat/fallow zone of intermountain west; cheatgrass takes over abandoned land, perennials can't re-establish; tried summerfallow, duckfoot cultivator, burning, and no preparation; summerfallow gave best results; fall seeding best; recommend planting of several grasses in different blocks to extend grazing.

Promising new legumes - milk vetch species, big headed clover, flat pea, siberian alfalfa, black medic, trailing birdsfoot, sanfoin, lupin, Montana goldenpea, perennial vetch. Yellow sweetclover was superior to white under drought conditions; dwarf varieties recommended in drier areas; clipping sweetclover reduced vigor, hay yield and total N per acre; Ladak the best alfalfa variety for the region.
