Investments by farmers in soil and water conservation (SWC) practices are influenced by the physical effectiveness, financial efficiency, and social acceptability of these practices. The objective of this study is to evaluate different SWC practices in the north-western highlands of Ethiopia using various qualitative criteria and weightings based on ecological, economic and social impacts. The soil profiles at sample sites were described to allow classification and provide the information required for the subsequent land evaluation. In addition, samples were taken from soil layers in 60 soil profiles for laboratory analyses of chemical, physical and mineralogical properties. DISTRICT ‘. By I. L.
