Soils of the Shire of Kowree - Victoria

The report: "
Soils of the Shire of Kowree, Victoria" was prepared by G. Blackburn (CSIRO) and F. Gibbons (Soil Conservation Authority) in 1956. It reports on investigations in the former Shire of Kowree in 1953-54 as a joint enterprise between CSIRO and the former Soil Conservation Authority. A study of the soils was undertaken, together with an examination of the then present and potential land uses in the Shire. An attempt was made to deal with fertility and other problems facing new development, including erosion hazards.
