Abstract

Shortly after the depression of 1929 and the early "thirties" I found myself in the north-eastern wheatbelt, employed as Agricultural Adviser in the Wheat Branch and charged with the responsibility of taking scientific agriculture to the farmers of those parts. The best farmers were struggling hard to stay on their properties; the majority were fighting losing battles and were not overpleased with the Government of the day or with any of its representatives.
