How long can you go? (1978)

Davies, T


This IREC Farmers Newsletter article presents information on mouldboarding to try to prepare rice land for other crop uses. At the time of the article the Department of Primary industry had purchased a Mouldboard to trial in breaking up sub soil and using in farm demonstrations. This will be used for future experiments in comparing with rippers and rotary tillers. The department will also investigate stubble incorporation. The article concludes that at present it is very expensive to contemplate deep cultivations and rotations were being changed drastically at the time. This they believed would lead no definite plans at the time but the department would keep working on it.
