Summary

Survey results released in Queensland about the fertile, productive Darling Downs show that farmers on the whole are largely ignoring modern tillage methods as a means of assisting erosion control. Some farmers still pass over their paddocks in pre-planting cultivations five, six and even seven times. Professor M. Coughenour, a visiting professor at the Queensland University last year, was involved in a study focusing on the Downs Eastern Uplands preceding the latest survey.
