The Bulletin " A Soil Survey of the Kerang Irrigation District, Victoria", reports on a soil survey conducted in 1939 by J. G. Baldwin, G. H. Burvill and J. R. Freedman of the former Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (now CSIRO)of 54,000 acres of the Kerang Irrigation District, in the Murray Valley in northern Victoria. Since this area was opened for irrigation at the time, increasing soil salinity had caused considerable loss of productivity, and the survey was designed to form the basis of future rehabilitation.
