Présentation de l'éditeur

This is the Kindle edition of the paperback book available at both www.createspace.com/3343469 & www.amazon.com/dp/1438225784/

This is the first Yeomans Keyline book published outside Australia and it details the principles, techniques and systems for sustainable development of rural and urban landscapes.

One of the primary objectives of Keyline planning is to enhance the swift development of deep biologically fertile soil, i.e. living soil, in a systematically designed landscape. Developing and deepening biological soil fertility will rebuild the soil structure and reduce the damaging effects of excessive storm-water runoff, which exacerbates erosion and infrastructure damage.

This book reveals how Keyline is the natural way to defeat the menace of soil erosion and salinity by healing the primary causes of soil erosion that are declining soil fertility and excessive stormwater runoff. The bio-adsorption of salinity and the long term storage of atmospheric carbon in the soil as humus are simply incidental benefits of Keyline.

This book reveals the Keyline methods to systematically convert subsoil into living topsoil. It explains the Keyline management techniques to resuscitate topsoil quickly so that the soil’s aerobic organisms are enabled to easily move down into the subsoil, spreading biological fertility and the resulting humus into the sub-soil below and so increasing the structural stability of the landscape.

This book will show you how to produce soil better than exists in the untended supposedly natural state.

Learn about Keyline pattern cultivation; a technique to achieve an exaggerated contour ripping pattern in undulating country. It causes the low points of the contour rip marks to occur in the centre area of the ridge shapes. The high points of the rip marks are in the centre of the adjoining valleys. Rainfall is of course rapidly adsorbed into the loosened soil. When runoff does eventually occur it tends to hang on the ridge shapes longer. This is a nice effect, considering ridges are normally dryer and harder than the adjacent valley shapes. The valleys benefit too from this pattern of cultivation because they don’t receive runoff during storm events till much further down where they are naturally flatter and more stable.
Keyline pattern cultivation is unique in this water spreading effect. All other common patterns of cultivation will somewhere cause runoff water to arrive in the valley shapes higher than would occur naturally. Keyline pattern cultivation is so effective for surface water control that it has enabled the rapid flood irrigation of gently undulating land without the need for terracing.

Whilst deep biologically fertile soil in a well-designed landscape was P.A. Yeomans’ goal, it was his development of the Keyline Scale of Permanence that provided the priority guide for planning the various factors of broad scale landscape planning and development. The correct planning priorities order is key to achieving optimum results.

On fully developed Keylined properties the vistas are of lakes with water birds; roads that climb along the ridge lines and follow level paths beside contour channels that are also adjacent to stepped contoured tree belts that shelter healthy crops and green pasture growing in deep, dark, biologically fertile soil.
No wonder this book is a recommended text for Permaculture students and natural farming enthusiasts worldwide.

This book includes updated selections and information; from the original P.A. Yeomans books:- The Keyline Plan (1954); The Challenge of Landscape (1958); (Water for Every Farm (1964 and 2nd edition 1968) and The City Forest (1971).

Biographie de l'auteur

Biography: PERCIVAL ALFRED YEOMANS or "P.A" as he became known to all, changed Australian agriculture and the thinking and methods of the agricultural community. He was born in Harden N.S.W. in 1905, eldest son of a family of four. In 1928 he married Rita Irene May Barnes, also of Harden. They had three children; Neville in 1928, Allan in 1931 and Ken in 1947. Rita Yeomans died in 1964. Death duties forced the sale of the two original Keyline properties near Sydney. In 1966, "P. A" married Jane Radek. They had two daughters, Julie and Wendy. He designed and built equipment to deeply loosen soil without bringing up the subsoil. This equipment was the first rigid tyned vibrating sub-soil cultivating ripper for use with farm tractors. It is many times more efficient than a chisel plow, and is able to loosen more soil to a greater depth using less tractor power. The Prince Philip Design Award officially recognised the breakthrough success of this equipment in 1974 when P. A. Yeomans Pty Ltd received this coveted award for the Bunyip Slipper Imp with Shakaerator. P. A. Yeomans devoted much of his latter life time to consulting, advising and lecturing on Keyline planning for which he has received requests from many parts of the world. P. A. Yeomans passed away, aged 79 years, in November 1984. Biography - KEN B. YEOMANS H.D.A.. Ken was born in Sydney, as the youngest son of P. A. Yeomans. Ken graduated from Hawkesbury Agricultural College, Richmond N.S.W. in 1969 with a Hawkesbury Diploma of Agriculture (H.D.A.). Ken Yeomans was a foundation member of the Agricultural Technologists of Australasia and is a member of the Irrigation Association of Australia and the Biological Farmers of Australia. Ken has a consulting practice in property design and development in S-E Queensland. His services include the site selection, survey and plan preparation of earthworks for large farm dams and Keyline gravity irrigation systems as well as assessing and making recommendations on; rebuilding the living fertility of soil, grazing management, cultivation practices, cropping programs and subdivision design. Throughout the states of Australia and overseas, for clients with land holdings ranging in size from under four hectares to over four hundred thousand hectares, Ken Yeomans has applied his knowledge and experience of Keyline on family farms, multiple occupancy communities and rural holdings of large corporations.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not for the average gardener 7 février 2014

Strangely worded and difficult to follow. For very large scale land owners and farmers. Not helpful for the average person who would be better off with a book like Gaia or other books on permaculture farming

Water For Every Farm is a compilation of other books written by PA Yeomans starting in the 1950's. The information presented is not outdated, and applies today. This book is invaluable to any landowner, farmer, or rancher that has ever struggled with periods of drought, or just would like more water available for their farm enterprises.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 It's an awesome concept, however 19 décembre 2014

I found it very difficult to understand at first. It would've been helpful to have more detailed pictures explaining the main features you need to know to understand Keyline. I also found there to be a lot of repetitive information. Maybe this will be an easier read for someone who isn't a visual learner. It's an awesome concept, however, and will benefit anyone who wants to improve the land around them. It's just not the most interesting read to get through.

On the third reading the information sinks in better. Some sections are dry and tedious to progress. Concept and use are essentially tools to aid water management.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 If you have farm land subject to variable weather, GET THIS BOOK 3 juin 2016

I could summarize the Yeomans Keyline plan here, but I will just say instead, THIS book, and these ideas, properly applied, could go a long way toward greatly reducing the effects of drought AND flood! As global warm hits us harder and harder, these ideas and techniques are going to be of paramount importance.
