Use of RUSLE for Soil Loss Prediction During Different Growth Periods

Almas, M. and T. Jamal

Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) was used for soil loss prediction from the standard erosion plots of banana, pineapple, intercrop of banana-pineapple and bare plot. The results were compared with the measured soil loss for each growth period and as an overall experimental period of nine months. The results showed that for individual periods the soil loss was over-estimated for some treatments and under-estimated for some except for banana plot. For overall experimental period the average per cent deviation from measured soil loss was only 12 per cent . The chi-square test showed that the difference in measured and predicted soil loss was not significant. On these basis it can be said that RUSLE model can be used for soil loss prediction from banana-pineapple intercropping system in Malaysia.
