Bari land (rain-fed upland) in Nepal is increasingly becoming a focus of concern in terms of soil fertility decline and management. This chapter describes participatory research that was undertaken in three contrasting agroecological regions in order to develop soil and water management interventions that control erosion without resulting in high leaching and so are effective in minimising total nutrient losses.
