Soil degradation is one of the detrimental environmental problems especially in the humid tropical regions like Malaysia. To mitigate and control undesirable siltation and in turn make soil more sturdy and effective to hamper the flow impact, effective best management practices (BMP) are required. Based on the previous studies wood shreds are feasible alternatives to agricultural straws and wood strands, in increasing infiltration, reducing runoff and improving biological activity and soil quality. This study provides a comparative analysis between the bare plot (Plot A), native grass (pearl grass) covered plot (plot B), and an arrangement of grass-patterns and wood shreds plot (plot C) to determine the efficiency of the plots in controlling erosion under the concentrated flow. The purpose of the study is to make the commonly practiced technique more useful to lessen and handle the erosion phenomenon and to make the improved knowledge of the experiment more helpful to provide profound information for soil conservation techniques.
