• Water Control by Rangeland Management

      Biswell, H. H. (Society for Range Management, 1969-07-01)
      In rangeland management, water quantity and quality are related to range condition. The better the range condition, the better the water relationships. Range condition can be improved by regulating grazing, reseeding, fertilizing, type conversions, and contour furrowing and pitting. Rangelands are highly variable in nearly every respect. The range manager must understand the climatic/topographic/soil/plant/animal/water relationships for the areas under his control; he must have sound management objectives; and he must be willing to work toward those objectives in so far as is economically feasible.
