Abstract

A new method for planning farm subdivision is described. Control and prevention of soil erosion, including the use of contour methods where needed, will be made easier on farms planned in this way. Often also, the farm road system will be better placed to give year-round access around the farm, gate sites are better, and usefulness of present watering places increased. The method is based on fencing along natural obstacles to cultivation, on the need to fence areas requiring different grazing management, and on the need to stabilise natural drainage lines.
