Abstract
A study was undertaken into the environmental and economic impacts of different soil management strategies, spontaneous grass cover with and without gully control (SC/SCGC) or conventional tillage with and without gully control (T/TGC), based on the experimental results obtained in an 6.1. ha olive crop microcatchment. Initially, 2. years of rainfall-runoff-sediment load data series, (34 events) recorded under the current management (SCGC), was used for the calibration of the AnnAGNPS model at event and monthly scales providing suitable adjustments of runoff, peak flow and sediment loads (. E>. 70, . r>. 0.85).Ephemeral gullies were also identified using aerial ...
