Central Highlands Land Management Manual, Central Queensland - CHL

This publication describes the soils and land resources of the Central Highlands area of Central Queensland. It is part of a series which detail the recommended land management practices for the major cropping areas of Queensland. The Central Highlands covers 8,645,670 hectares comprising the shires of Emerald, Bauhinia and the majority of Belyando and Peak Downs. The field manual contains a summary of the region's soil and land characteristics appropriate to management and recommendations for their use. The soils in the district have not been mapped in detail but their character and pattern of distribution can be determined by recognisable patterns of vegetation, landform and geology (Land Resource Areas) which were mapped at a scale of 1:500,000. The manual also outlines agricultural management units (land type sheets).
