A pictorial presentation titled Achieving soil conservation in Queensland with over 200 photos to tell the story –it is a 25MB file so it may take a minute to download depending on your internet connection A written account of the history of soil conservation in Qld...
 Water spreading involves creating low bunding rills that follow the contour of the ground. The water collects against the bunding and then fills into the borrow pit from which the dirt is taken to make the rill. The water is then delivered further on in a slower and even...
A REPORT COMMISSIONED BY THE MARANOA LANDCARE GROUP by Jim Herbert, Department of Primary Industries, Queensland and Peter Evans, Queensland Transport.
Report based on a study tour of sites near Bollon, Cunnamulla, Eulo, Toompine, Quilpie, and Mitchell 6–9 June 1994 A. J. Koch, Drought and Rural Development, DPI; W. J. Bryant, J. G. Herbert, A. D. Muller, and H. J. Gray Resource Management, DNR (South Region)...
These fact sheets were prepared by Bruce Carey in DERM to incorporate the information from Darryl Hill’s Grader field days as well as many other publications on the topic produced in the last 30 years.
Here is a link to a fact sheet DERM has prepared on wind erosion.  http://www.derm.qld.gov.au/factsheets/pdf/land/l259.pdf Hopefully it will help to improve people's understanding of the issue and should answer a few questions when we...
This is a report presented by G.W. Fraser and D.K. Waters at the 13th International Soil Conservation Organisation Conference, held in Brisbane, July 2004, on the topic of modelling runoff and erosion processes in central Queensland grazing lands.
A short pamphlet by W.H. Burrows on the topic of Woody Weeds present in the runoff and runon areas of southwest Queensland.
This paper highlights the relevant issues influencing the amount and arrangement of ground cover in savanna rangelands in Australia, and presents field measurements from hillslope scale flumes, which demonstrate how runoff and sediment loss vary with spatial patterns in ground...
Some hydrological characteristics of a red earth soil were examined under two pasture types at Yathong in central-westem New South Wales using simulated rainfall. Runoff and rate of sediment loss from plots dominated by perennial grasses were lower than for plots dominated by...
Studies have shown that gully and stream bank erosion contribute much of the sediment exported from grazing lands. These processes are driven by the amount of runoff leaving hillslopes and there is a correlation between poor land condition and high amounts of runoff....
