This program provides two case studies of farms that have rehabilitated their salt-stricken land using a number of different methods and given hope to other communities around Australia.
This program presents 4 case studies of sustainable agriculture. * Whole form planning: inputs, outputs, erosion control, soil management, tree planting, water management, and salinity control. * Landcare: communities banding together. * Permaculture. * Inner city gardens.
Is irrigation in the Murray-Darling basin sustainable? While irrigation produces 36% of the agricultural profits from Australia's "food bowl", it does not come without a cost to the environment. Is salinity and degradation of biodiversity of the MDB too high a price to pay? This program examines the development of irrigation and irrigation methods to give students an understanding of the use of water in the MDB for the production of fruit, pastures, rice and cotton. Possible future developments are also outlined to address key knowledge requirements of the Geography Study Design.
