Furrowing, Water penetration
First Page Number
Last Page Number
THROUGHOUT our pastoral regions in all land divisions from Murchison to Kimberley, there are extensive areas of bare country which must be broken in some way to enable water penetration and to provide a place for seed to lodge before regeneration of pasture species can be expected. Earlier articles in this Journal have explained the occurrence of these bare areas, and described methods of furrowing. Checkerboard designs have been successful on perfectly level locations but contouring becomes essential where there is a slope of any dimension.
