Abstract

Over the last 2 years, the northeastern part of the state has been devastated by gully washers and torrential rains. The result has been significant storm damage and erosion. To make matters worse, areas that escaped hard rainfall last year were hit this year. Severe rill and sheet erosion is present in most producers' fields and seems especially severe in fields with Kenyon and Fayette and Downs soils. It is a characteristic of the Fayette and Downs soils to have short slopes; however, the intensity of rainfall has lead to the severe damage in these fields.
