"THE CAMPBELLTOWN PLACE"

 

   While the "Campbelltown Place" is all sand and sandstone with poor trees and scrub, it has a better climate than "Nevallan", being favoured by more summer storms. Keyline soil improvement, including superphosphate, with clovers, inoculents and grass seeds, were all that were necessary to start off the cycle of soil improvement. This is a special soil-making experiment worth watching.
