Abstract

The Fifth International Congress of Soil Science was held in Belgian Congo in August, A 1954, because the International Society of Soil Science felt it was important for greater attention to be devoted to the problems of soils and agriculture in the tropics. The author, with three other Australian soil scientists, represented Australia at the Congress. While in Africa the opportunity was taken to spend several weeks in South Africa, and the Rhodesias, seeing various phases of agriculture, and particularly noting the methods used for soil conservation and extension (advisory services). Funds for this trip were made available from Commonwealth Extension Services Grant.
