Research gossip

Triticum, (1986) Research gossip. The Queensland Graingrower, 27 August 1986. p. 1 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Soil conservationist David Freebairn has left for three years of study in the United States at the Department of Soils, University of Minnesota, St. Paul, for a doctorate. His work will be a continuation of what he has been doing in Queensland. There would be few farmers, particularly in southern Queensland, who have not heard of, or been influenced by David's research on stubble retention, run-off, erosion and water storage. David will be studying the effect of tillage on soil water storage and movement while in the United States. He also hopes to acquire skills and develop new methods for studying infiltration, evaporation and extraction of water by roots.
