Southern Wimmera Soils

This report on 'Southern Wimmera soils and their significance to local agriculture' was prepared by Nabil Badawy of the former Department of Agriculture in 1982.

The information included in this report was originally presented by the author at a 'Minimum Tillage' symposium held at Horsham in 1981 by the Department of Agriculture. A reference to the soils was considered valuable to the theme of the symposium.

Note that soils in this report are described in terms of the earlier Northcote Factual Key classification. Today, the Australian Soil Classification is the standard for classifying Australian soils.
