Tasmanian Farm Pictures from 1989
Some pictures taken in 1989 (used in a school assignment I did at the time) on a farming friend's property, at Perth, in Northern Tasmania.

The first shot is of the farm homestead.

Looking out across a ploughed paddock. The paddock was destined for a forage brassica crop, used for sheep grazing.

Part of a radiata pine shelter belt (planted in 1978). This particular farmer planted alot of shelter belts on his property over the years.

Cattleyards with the haybarn behind.

I have posted a similar photo (taken about 10years after this one) in another FP post.

Renovated pasture paddock. This paddock was prayed off with Roundup & direct drilled with grass & clover, in the previous autumn (1988).

It is rather ironic as I have posted some pics of this same paddock, with poppies in it (about 10-11 years after this particular photo was taken).

It was one of the paddocks on this property that grew the Top Poppy crop in the district.

A newly established shelterbelt of eucalypts & pines, on the eastern side of the farm. This was planted only a few months before I took the photo.

Newly established renovated pasture paddock (established in autumn 1989).

Like the other photo in this thread, the paddock was sprayed off with Roundup then direct drilled with grass & clover, using a Duncan triple disc drill.

A cheaper method of pasture renovation than traditional ploughing, cultivatio& sowing.

Another shelterbelt of eucalypts, wattles, blackwoods & pines, established in 1979.

Eucalypts, Wattles & Blackwoods are all native species here in Tasmania.

Potato paddock.

A slack sharefarmer & a wet winter has meant that the majority of this crop had still not been harvested when this photo was taken (in September 1989).

As it was the last potatoes in this paddock were harvested in early December (13 months after the crop was planted!!)

The final photo.

Bad erosion in a rotary spinner drain. The soil was quite sandy & heavy rain (& alot of runoff) has caused this drain to washout, resulting in this erosion.

Good pictures TC. Looks like you have a lot of good flat land over in Tasmania.

Re: Tasmanian Farm Pictures from 1989
Thanks JCB,

Yes, it depends on where you are in Tassie. In the Northern Midlands area where I live it is generally flat. On the North West Coast it is more steeper, undulating country.

There is quite alot of variation for a place with the land area of Holland but only a population of about 450,000 :-)

Thanks Stu,

Made me think the other day when Michiel posted those pics of soil erosion about a pic I had or erosion.

When I hunted it out, I found these other ones too, so thought they would make a nice series to post on here :-)
