How can farmers reduce soil erosion?

Basically farmers have to plant lot of trees at the boundary of their field (specially neem trees).its roots will hold the soil properly and prevent its erosion.

There are two major causes of erosion, wind and water. While wind erosion is fairly well addressed by windbreaks, reducing water caused erosion requires leaving land covered. The impact of rain drops is the primary caused of soil particle detachment. Leaving crop residue on the surface breaks this impact. Cover crops also help by providing cover and feeding soil life. In healthy soils microbes add naturally sticky substances that help improve the stability of soils; they glue the particles together. The best way to get both the residue coverage and microbial glues is to totally eliminate tillage of the soil. Called no till agriculture, this system plants through crop residues with minimal disturbance. As soil health improves, the soils are able to absorb more water, further reducing erosion.

How did medieval blacksmiths learn how to be a blacksmith?

You became a blacksmith by apprenticing to the trade which means going and living with a master smith and and learning from him or her. For a period of several years you worked for all intents for free. At some point the mastersmith would decide if you were worthy of training or decide that you were unfit for the trade. If the mastersmith judged you as worthy you would then learn from them the basic skills need to become a journeyman. When the mastersmith decided you ready you would make a test piece for for the mastersmith to judge. If approved by the mastersmith then the test piece would be judged by the a guild. If the guild approved the test piece you became a journeyman.

As a journeyman you were expected to travel the land and learn from any mastersmith you could. When you felt you were ready you then made another test piece for the guild and if approved by the guild. You were raise to the level of mastersmith. at which point you could set up shop train apprentices and start the cycle again.

the whole process could take as much as 15 years or more. where blacksmiths were in short supply the whole thing could be shortened to a few years.
