Summary

Surveyor's Report on WISALTS Soil Conservation System created by JD (Jim) McGregor.

Comments: I have used level banks up on the slopes and the graded lines have a 1 to 2 centimetre fall, "a" is half way up a gentle slope and is level with a partly open end. "b" finishes through the neighbours paddock cutting off 25 to 30 acres of the problem there. The level banks above dams didn't have the clay pushed for approximately 5 yards in front of the dam mouth. Erosion is a potential problem here due to severely working the cropping land.

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