A method by which soil erosion can be prevented in non-slope areas is cover cropping. This process involves planting crops like corn, cereal, and oats to protect the fertile top soil from being washed or blown away by rainfall and winds. This method can be done between periods of harvesting and re-sowing of principal crops to aid income, reduce the loss of arable land and barrenness. It also enables the farmer to remove excess weeds. It also enables nitrogen fixing, improving quality and texture of the soil.
