Soil Survey of Part of County Moira Victoria

A soil survey of part of the former County Moira, Victoria, that was to be supplied with water for irrigation from the Murray River, commenced in 1938 by B E Butler, J G Baldwin, F Penman and R G Downes of the former Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (now CSIRO). This historic bulletin, published in 1942 covers the work on the eastern portion that comprised seven parishes; the remaining parishes of the projected area were to be included in a subsequent survey.
