Drought: Causes Effects Solutions, Campbell, Don
4 Campbell, Don Drought: Causes Effects Solutions
Australia F.W. Cheshire 1968 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
viii + 135 pages including b/w illustrations. There is always a drought somewhere in Australia, a drought in which animals die of thirst and starvation or in which valuable crops and pastures wither. Drought losses are re?ected in every pocket and bank account in the nation. The author says, ‘lt seems as though we have grown accustomed to drought, and in doing so we have grown accustomed to a wickedness and a cruelty and a ?nancial loss that in 500 years’ time will cause the history readers to gasp in astonishment. They will know ‘us as a people who seldom cared for the huge ?ocks they fed on or by whom they were made richer, when those same ?ocks perished and starved in their millions, year after year after year.’ This book lifts the lid on a dozen controversial drought issues, indicts the overdraft system of money lending for farmers and graziers, is relentlessly critical of bad land management but offers alternatives and solutions to some of the problems contained in the complex question of Australian droughts. One thing is certain ... you won't read this book without a sense of shame and having read it you will know the ?erce, destructive power of droughts, and how much they are costing you, whether you live on the land or in the city. Moderate wear in the cover and small stains in the front edges.

Australian Agriculture: Reconciling Change and Tradition, Campbell, Keith O.
5 Campbell, Keith O. Australian Agriculture: Reconciling Change and Tradition
Australia Longman 1980 0582710898 / 9780582710894 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
274 indexed pages. Includes bibliographical references. This book has a dual purpose. First, it is an attempt to introduce city people to farmers’ attitudes and aspirations, to the social and economic environment in which they operate, and to current and likely future developments in the rural industries. Second, it aims to provide farmers and others connected with the agricultural industries with an analysis of the complexities and rami?cations of the problems with which they have to deal. The book is not concerned, other than marginally, with the physical and climatic basis of Australian agriculture nor with the biological and technological processes by which crops and livestock are produced. Such information is available in other books and monographs. This book is concerned rather with the factors which lie behind the social and political differences which are the bases of rural versus urban schisms.

Water Politics in the Murray-Darling Basin (Land and Water Australia Environmental Solutions), Connell, Daniel
6 Connell, Daniel Water Politics in the Murray-Darling Basin (Land and Water Australia Environmental Solutions)
Australia Federation Press 2007 1862876339 / 9781862876330 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
241 indexed pages including bibliography. In 2007, John Howard, announced a $10 billion plan to reform rural water management. Most of the effort will focus in the Murray-Darling Basin. In this book Daniel Connell explains why there is a crisis in the Murray-Darling. He highlights the disastrous consequences of a century of fitful, reluctant 'co-operation' between the six governments responsible for the region. Connell argues that a new institutional system is essential --but a Commonwealth takeover is not the best answer. Instead, the Commonwealth government should use its constitutional and financial power to force the States to adopt national policies --and stick to them, whatever the local politics. The States would continue to play a substantial role but the controls would be tighter, the framework more comprehensive. He also shows how the National Water Initiative, the great blueprint for water reform, has stalled with many of its most important recommendations ignored. So far the public debate about the future of the Murray-Darling Basin has concentrated on new technical projects and increased water trading. Connell argues that, unless institutional change is given priority, hundreds of millions of dollars of annual investment will be frittered away. Contents: Prologue - The danger of boredom; Conversations with Goyder's ghost (A context for talking about water); Beyond sober thought (Governments take control 1880s - 1920s); Excluding lawyers from paradise (Establishing a public policy framework 1900s - 1980s); Alignment of the planets (Another attempt at basin-wide management); Talking sustainability dreaming production (Contradictions within contemporary water management); The chariot wheels of the Commonwealth (Responsibility for reform - what should be done?); Epilogue - Pragmatism, a philosophy of despair. There is a name in the inside front cover.

Tasmanian weed handbook: A guide to the identification of the main broad-leaf weeds of crops and pastures in Tasmania, Hyde-Wyatt, Brian H.
7 Hyde-Wyatt, Brian H. Tasmanian weed handbook: A guide to the identification of the main broad-leaf weeds of crops and pastures in Tasmania
Tasmania Tasmanian Dept. of Agriculture 1975 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 8vo Morris, Dennis I. 
112 indexed pages including drawings, b/w and colour illustrations. The development of a wide range of selective herbicides has made the control of the majority of broad-leaved weeds a practical proposition in most crops. For these materials to be used effectively, however, it is essential that the weeds be identified at an early stage of growth while they are still susceptible. This book has been produced to assist farmers and extension workers in the identification of young weeds. The species featured in this handbook are the most important or most commonly found weeds of crops and pasture in Tasmania. A number of less common species have been included either because they are potentially capable of becoming economically important or because they closely resemble important weeds. Unfortunately young plants have few characteristics which assist in their identification. The flowering and fruiting parts, upon which the botanical classification is largely based, are absent. In addition many of their features, for example size, leaf shape, and colour, may be variable and dependent on seasonal conditions and environmental factors. Consequently it is often impossible to identify a seedling with complete accuracy. Very few have certain characters which are specific. Identification should not be based upon a single individual and it is usually possible to find a range of specimens in different growth stages which will enable the identification to be made with greater accuracy. Weed identification cannot be learned entirely from a book. It is hoped that this Handbook will prove to be a useful aid, but skill in identification can only be achieved by constant practice in the field. Name in the front cover and in the first page. Small light stains in the cover.
