Understanding different types of erosion, by water or wind, can help us protect our soils.
Soil erosion is a widespread problem in Queensland and can cause significant impacts to the environment and infrastructure.
We can avoid erosion by using land according to its capability, protecting the surface cover and controlling runoff.
The third edition of the Soil Conservation Guidelines for Queensland was released in 2015.
Soil conservation plans show how runoff can be controlled and guided through a property to minimise erosion.
