Abstract

The rainfed uplands occupy about one-third area of northern Vietnam and are Threatened with destruction of natural habitat due to improper land use practices. Agricultural technologies practiced on these lands are exacerbating soil loss and destruction of the natural habitat as the soils are deeply weathered, poor ill nutrients, and highly vulnerable to erosion, The loss of humus rich topsoil leaving behind the subsoil devoid of vital plant nutrients is leading /0 rampant infertility' and poor water holding capacity of soils. The upland ecosystems have much lower carrying capacity and respond to crop intensification by rapid declines in productively, even total collapse if not managed properly, '
