Following drought breaking rains the agriculturalists of the St George area were beginning to cultivate the land again - too late for a summer crop of irrigated cotton but sorghum and sunflowers were alternatives that are bringing good returns and require a shorter growing season than cotton. This farmer has developed his farm much more than is shown on GE and this particular field lies immediately to the north of the major water storage shown on GE. The fields of this new farm have been laser-levelled for irrigation pruposes. Water allocations come from Lake Kajarabie (Balonne & Maranoa Rivers) and from large water storages on the farm that store harvested surface water. (The marker indicates approximate camera position for this aerial photo.)

Ian Brimblecombe was the tractor driver, down there! He was on safari tracking down the LINES and leaving the TIGER behind him.

Nice pictures. I worked at G & R Grahams farm in 2005. Aprox 7 km south from St George Great experience:)

And the tractor so small...

Thanks for your comment and visit, Motorhand. That 'small tractor' is very big and very powerful - and needs to be for the extensive cottonfields.

I am pleased that you appreciate the pattern of this single topic photo.

Warm regards from Queensland.
