Would you consider installing some rainwater harvesting earthworks in conjunction with planting cover crops?

I am familiar with that region, and would say earthworks and cover crops are equally important. In those foothills, swales without a good ground cover could result in massive landslides once the heavy rains come.
Thanks for the advice. do you think it would be realistic to make big swales by hand? and what plants would you recommend for combating the landslide issue. most of the land is on a hill so that could be a problem.
