Darryl Hill is one of only a few qualified instructors running grader workshops for soil conservation in Australia.  That’s why these workshops are a great opportunity for graziers to learn from one of the best.

Land managers will obtain the correct knowledge, skills and management tools to understand the causes of soil erosion, how to avoid triggering additional erosion and how to ameliorate existing erosion.

The aim of the workshops is to provide participants with a better understanding:

  • of the cause of water erosion on station tracks and fence lines;
  • an overview of traditional versus alternative ways of dealing with water erosion;
  • basic surveying principles;
  • on-ground experience in basic surveying skills and the use of a dumpy level;
  • a demonstration of grader techniques for erosion control.
