Received Date: May 21, 2018 / Accepted Date: Jun 21, 2018 / Published Date: Jun 25, 2018
Forest conversion in agricultural land without considering the capability and suitability of land can causes a breakdown in Krueng Seulimum watershed. This breakdown can be seen by the high attrition, low productivity, high sedimentation in the upper land, and high fluctuation in the downstream. This study aims to predict the amount of erosion on any watershed land units and to manage of searching the right methods such as soil and water conservation techniques, which are able to suppress erosion.
