How does terrace farming work?

    Terrace farming is done on the side of a mountain. The farmers will build stone or sod walls to form sort of stair-like benches. The walls slow the erosion and water runoff process. Also, since they are usually built high in the mountains, each level has a different altitude so you can grow different kinds of crops there. Here is a picture:
