ABSTRACT
The aim of this project was to find out possible solutions of elimination of water erosion on slopes by means of the application of organic matter into the soil. The pilot experiment was established in a sugar-beet growing region and there were two variants with different doses of applied compost (i.e. 20 and 40 t.ha-1). Doses of compost were applied either in the variant with the catch crop (sown in the autumn after the harvest of the main crop) or without it, i. e. as a control. Results of a three-year study on erosion phenomena in a maize monoculture indicated that the erosion soil washing-away occurred in all years in the control variant (i.e. that without the application of organic matter and the catch crop; in the year 2013, only a lower dose of compost was applied). This means that the amount of applied organic matter significantly eliminates and reduces the erosion washing-away of soil.

Keywords: compost, soil washing-away, maize
