Keyline film from 1955

Posted by Peter Donovan 12 years, 6 months ago

We are indebted to Darren Doherty's website for the following information and video:

This is perhaps one of the oldest known films on the Keyline concept filmed on PA Yeomans' former farm 'Nevallan' circa 1955. Its somewhat remarkable from a few perspectives: * It was produced by a Bank * It was made at a time when fertiliser technology in agriculture was promising subsidised fertility out of a bag as opposed to conscious design and management of the natural elements * It is 55 years on and we still have landscapes that rapidly shed water, soils that are eroding, rural communities shrinking, cities not feeding and watering themselves etc. etc. etc.
