A research program of water conservation and of soil rebuilding and maintenance has been initiated in southern Iowa as a phase of the Cooperative Hillculture project of the Iowa Agricultural Experiment station and the Soil Conservation Service. Existing and newly established vegetative covers are being evaluated as interplanting materials between the rows of larger, chiefly woody, and plants of economic value which are grown in furrows on the exact contour under varying degrees of cultivation.
