Associated to the scholarship:14/02230-6 - Direct and indirect method for determination of soil loss by erosive processes in agricultural properties located in the cities of Getulina and Vera Cruz – SP, BP.MS


The aim to do the abroad period at research group Calidad y Aplicaciones Suelos Medioambientales (CASAM), from Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Agronomists, Polytechnic University of Madrid, as described in the master regular research project (Process: 2014/02230-6), is to change knowledge about the estimation methods of soil loss by erosion, in particular: the Soil Loss Universal Equation (USLE) and the field erosion experimental plots, on the in order for them to be applied in determining the direct and indirect loss soils on farms studied in the research. So, will be emphasized the characteristics study of agricultural management systems that play a key role in determining the erosive response, the rainfall erosivity, soil erodibility and conservation practices.
