The cropping management factor, C, in the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) has been measured on a newly reclaimed Yesan sandy loam of 20% slope under various cropping system. Soil losses measured from lysimeter were 12.9, 5.4, 3.1, and 1.2 ton/10a for clean tilled, corn, barley-soybean, and grass, respectively. The values of C to be utilized in Soil-Loss Equation was obtained as fallows; corn 0.47, upland rice 0.34, barley-soybean 0.18, barley-sweet potato 0.10, grass 0.08, barley-corn 0.34, wheat-soybean 0.25, barley-corn (Soybean) 0.42, barley-corn (sweet potato) 0.37, wheat-sesame 0.20, barley-red pepper 0.18, red pepper 0.32, sesame 0.28, potato-soybean 0.26, respectively. According to the comparisons between the actual soil loss measured by lysimeter and the soil loss predicted by the USLE, the smallest difference of both method came from barley-soybean while the largest came from corn.
