Original Abstract

The study area, the upper part of the Svratka River basin, was selected in order to evaluate trends in soil degradation primarily because it comprises natural conditions with a high potential for soil degradation. In order to collect relevant data on soil conservation, a questionnaire survey was designed and executed. Data on soil and farming practices were collected by a soil protection expert. In addition, farmers in the case study region were interviewed (semi-structured interviews) regarding policies concerning soil protection, as well as the farming practices they adopted.
