Rill erosion in crop fields is still a common sight. In some cases these rills become gullies. The difference between rills and gullies is that rills can still be crossed easily with farm equipment, but gullies cannot. Rills can easily become gullies in no-till field if the erosion continues unabated. If you see rills forming in your field, it is important to diagnose the cause and change management so they do not become gullies. Once you have gullies in your field the only thing to do is to fill them back in and make sure they do not form again.
