Abstract


The researches conducted worldwide have shown that a land deprived of vegetation is sensitive to degradation processes. Annually, eroded land area increase on average by 0.9%, while annual losses of topsoil are estimated at about 126 million tones. This interest in preventing of rain erosion is due to the consequences of this phenomenon on soil fertility and associated processes: reducing transport capacity of the river system, clogging lakes and socioeconomic objectives, land and water pollution.
