The aim of this project is to propose the recovery of degraded areas by hydric erosion in two coffee-producing properties, located in Getulina (Adamantina Formation) and Vera Cruz (Marília Formation) municipalities. It will be identified and located the erosions, trough the analysis of its dynamics, as well the characterization of pluviometric aspects. For this purpose will be done field and office survey to identify trough informations about aspects of history of regional occupation, vegetation cover, land use, kind of relieves, geological foundation, kind of soils and climatic conditions, the relevant elements which causes erosion processes in the two locations. Finally, will be applied alternative techniques, of less costs to recovery these erosions, allowing not just the capitalized planters, but as well the those less capitalized, to have the possibility of access and applicability of the techniques.
