/ Contour Farming
Contour farming is farming with row patterns that run nearly level around the hill -- not up and down the hill.
Contour stripcropping is crop rotation and contouring combined in equal-width strips of corn or soybeans planted on the contour and alternated with strips of oats, grasses, or legumes.
