Field Walk - Booie
The Kingaroy Landcare Group and BGA Agriservices will be running a Field Walk at Nev and Narelle Jorgensen's property at Jorgensens Road in Booie from 2:00pm to 4:00pm this afternoon. The walk would be of interest to anyone concerned about making better use of limited rainfall on cropping land, and Nev will be comparing rainfall inflitration in pastures sown on old cropping land by placing small check banks between existing contour banks against ripping and not disturbing the soil at all. Today's get-together is is a follow-up to a similar field day run four years ago to look at the results of using each of the three methods, so it should be pretty interesting!
