This bulletin describes farming practices that conserve soil and how such practices may he applied to farms in a large part of the South. Its scope is limited to that part of the Cotton Belt extending west from the Georgia Alabama line to central Texas and southern Oklahoma. Its subject matter is based largely on the soil conservation practices employed by farmers who live within the various project areas of the Soil Conservation Service in this section of the cotton country. Erosion control practices for cotton farms to the east are described in Farmers' Bulletin 1767, Soil Defense in the Piedmont.
