Profile of erosion from a major storm in the South-east cropping zone


, : Profile of erosion from a major storm in the South-east cropping zone. Australian Journal of Soil and Water Conservation 6(4): 50-55

Soil erosion and related costs for two major storm events in the south-east Australian wheat belt are discussed. Erosion was measured for the combined events as 342, 362 and 65 tonnes per hectare for the traditional tillage, reduced tillage and direct drill treatments respectively on the long term tillage trial at the Cowra Research Centre. Though such major erosion events are infrequent in the region the on- and off-farm costs are significant, even when spread across the intervening years.
