Letter to the Editor - Contour banks have proved their worth

Greenup, B. (1987) Letter to the Editor - Contour banks have proved their worth. The Queensland Graingrower, 7 January 1987. p. 4 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Letter to the editor by Brodie Greenup, "Barnaline", Cambooya, Queensland.

A response to an article by Rob Loch that was published in the Queensland Wheat Research Institute's "Queensland Wheat Research 1986 highlights of the year. Mr Greenup states that the Wheat Research highlights was not a suitable place for this article, and as a practical farmer who has been fighting soil erosion for years, he could not agree with Rob Loch's attack on contour banks. On the southern Downs in Queensland, contour banks have proved their worth in the control of soil erosion. Mr Greenup also says that with the advancement of chemical weed control, strip cropping and tillage implements there is no doubt that the practical farmer will use a combination to get the maximum effort in controlling soil erosion.
