Middleton, M. (1983) Soil erosion level 'disastrous'. The Queensland Graingrower, 4 May 1983. [Publication] [Special Collections]


Newspaper article by Max Middleton, Chairman of the Q.G.G.A. Soil Conservation Committee.

The recently released Eather Committee report to the Queensland Minister for Primary Industries has highlighted the fact that soil erosion in Queensland has reached a disastrous level with irreversible damage having already occurred to soils in some instances. The report recommends expansion of the Soil Conservation Authority to diversify representation, it also identifies the need for education and public awareness on soil conservation including school programs.
