Dry aggregate collection.
The Mallee Soil Erosion and Land Management Survey commenced in 1978 as a means to assess land management practices and the degree to which erosion was occurring on dryland agricultural land in the Victorian Mallee region. Data has been collected annually over the past 30 years. In 2005-2006 the survey underwent a review and redesign with the current methods commencing in 2007.
The survey is currently conducted three times a year with in-paddock measurements undertaken at 157 sites for the assessment of current management, erosion risk (vegetation cover & soil dry aggregates), livestock presence and centre point photograph.
