The consequences of water erosion processes in arable lands are reduction of the root layer, deterioration of soil structure, lower water retention capacity of the soil and loss of nutrients and organic matter, and final result, reduction of soil fertility. To combat water erosion on slope lands were created advanced systems for minimum and unconventional tillage for cultivation of maize on slope lands. This study examines the economic efficiency of these systems, included the impact of these treatments on the yield of crops and their conservation effect.
