A Land Capability Study of the Rural City of Marong - Technical Report No. 7

Land Capability Study | Map Units

The primary objective of this study was to provide the municipality with detailed land resource information, consisting of base data on the nature of the land and of assessments of the likely performance of the land under various activities. This information can underpin many land use and management decisions by the municipal authority. In doing so, many of the problems and unexpected costs which would be incurred by the use of the land beyond its capabilities can be avoided.

This study by E J Bryant and M S Lorimer of the former Department of Natural Resources and Environment, completed in April 1993; describes in detail the land present in the rural city of Marong and provides information relevant to land use planning and assessment.
