Cover: 'Self help' in contour surveys has been advocated by the Department of Agriculture's Soil Conservation Service for the past 10 years. One of many farmers to follow the Service's advice is Soil Conservation Advisory Committee Chairman E.H. Lee Steere, pictured at work with the hose level on the slopes of his porperty 'Hawthorne' Toodyay.
Much of the sloping land on Mr Lee Steere's property is protected by contour banks, some of which can be seen in the background.
An article in this issue explians how farmers can do their own contour surveying. Advice on this and other aspects of soil conservation is freely available from the Department of Agriculture.
