Terraced Farms
when it rains, instead of washing away the soil, the soil stays in place. Nutrients are also held in place or carried down to the next level.

Terrace rice fields in Yunnan Province, China. Rice paddy cultivation has been in use for thousands of years. (The oldest physical radiocarbon dated paddy is 3500 BC in Korea.) These Yunnan terraced fields were carved by hand by the Hani people, the rice terraces turned barren hillside into lush farmland. These patio fields support enough rice as well as fish cultivation for hundreds of thousands of people. Water is preserved in the hilltop forests, and channeled down to the terraces for irrigation. The terraces are flooded from November to March. Recent studies have shown that methane production can be significantly reduced while also boosting crop yield by draining the paddies to allow the soil to aerate thereby interrupting methane production. Rice production is a major source of atmospheric methane. Image by Jialiang Gao, wikipedia.org.
