Summary

Surveyor's Report on WISALTS Soil Conservation System created by B (Ben) Davey.

Comments: System designed under strict budget. Paddock has a lot of rocky sections with salt scalds appearing since contour banks were installed and gullies filled in with topsoil (water being held above ex-gullies causing throughflow though). Filled in topsoil. Subsoil and topsoil vary considerably over paddock with original vegetation being of york gum, white gum, tamnia and sheoak.

This document is part of the WISALTS (Whittington Interceptor Sustainable Agriculture Land Treatment Society Incorporated) Collection.
