13. Importance of terrace farming Objectives


A terrace farm is a levelled section of a hilly cultivated area, designed as a method of soil conservation to slow or prevent the rapid surface runoff. Often a hilly land is changed into multiple terraces, giving it a step-like appearance. This form of land used for agriculture is prevalent in many countries including India.


This project could be done only in those areas where terrace farming is practised. Visit a terrace farm and ask the farmers and workers questions such as:

1. How do they make the terraces?
