Summary
Abstract: The Billa Billa Folow Management Experiment was initiated in 1983. The soil
parent material at the site consists of cretaceous sediments (lithic
sandstone). The native vegetation was cleared in 1971. The Site was cropped
annually to wheat from this time until experiment commenced in November 1983.
The native vegetation was belah (Casuarina cristata) open forest with some
brigalow (Acacia ... View entire text
