The paucity of knowledge by the majority of the rural farmers has made information on soil erosion difficult to perceive. The problem, however, can be overcome by using predictive models for planning, assessment and extension purposes. The objective of this paper was to predict soil loss by the methods of USLE and interview the farming families. The study showed that the factors that determined the rate of soil loss in the study area were the Topographical Factor and the Soil Erodibility of the different textural classes.
