Using RTK steering data for soil erosion control and water logging prevention.. At the site we calculated that 34,000 tonnes of soil was eroded, and 30,000 tonnes deposited... Figure 7: Left shows a post flood topography map top (blue = higher, red = lower) and the map on the right shows erosion/ deposition (white = erosion, bright blue/yellow = deposition, brown = little change)..

Soil monitoring important following fire.. Soils affected by fire can have their microbial buffer against diseases weakened... While some plant pathogens may be reduced following extreme fire events such as the Pinery fire in South Australia's lower north region last year, growers affected by fire are being urged to monitor nutrient levels and soilborne disease pathogens in the lead-up to and during the 2016 growing season...

According to satellite images, over 100,000 ha of land was inundated from the Condamine River due to flooding in early 2011... Contour banks were poorly maintained due to years of drought conditions... Contours running down a hill generally spread the flow of water and reduce flow rates, though with the intensity of the flooding this year, this was not always the case...

GPS offers new approach to paddock renovation.. Toowoomba-based agronomist Tim Neale from Precision Agriculture said the flooding had displaced tens of thousands of tonnes of soil on grain growers' properties, which costs about $2 per tonne to replace using conventional laser-levelling... GPS units are able to covert this data into detailed topographical maps, which can be run through OptiSurface software to design an appropriate surface gradient that involves shifting the minimum amount of soil...
