15727: Sieve structures for landscape rehydration booklet

    Inspecting a working sieve structure
    Inspecting a working sieve structure

    This project aims to produce a 'how to' booklet on sieve structures. The use of sieve structures is promoted as a low cost and effective solution for erosion control and rangeland stabilisation and repair but the technique is new and not much is known within the rangeland community of the specifics of how it is done. So far the technique has failed to achieve widespread adoption. This project will overcome the identified knowledge gap on how sieve structures are best located and installed and will drive adoption of this new and effective rangeland remediation technique.
