Saving soil - A landholder's guide to preventing and repairing soil erosion


This guide brings together current information from a variety of sources that will provide the reader with a useful resource to:

  • understand techniques to prevent and remedy erosion
  • apply these techniques to their landscape and soil type
  • integrate erosion control in their routine land management
  • fix minor erosion problems
  • know when to seek technical expertise
  • know what to ask experts.

This guide is designed for new and long time landholders, community support officers, extension officers, Landcare groups, and agricultural industry bodies.

We have used the terms landholder and land manager interchangeably, as in many cases the individuals concerned with erosion issues may not be the legal owners or occupiers of the land, or identify as farmers.
