The Red Book
& Prices

The RED BOOK is a booklet with pictures illustrating the variety of plows we make and the range of points and components that can go with them.

Deciding Your Plow Configuration

How many horse power per tine (or shank or leg). Whether a three point linkage plow or a trailing model. Size of tines to suit. And other things to ponder and decide on.

Using a Yeomans Plow

When do I first use it. What's a suitable speed. How deep should I go. What points to use. Do I need coulters. And lots of other things it's nice to know.

An Academic’s Keyline Assessment

The late Professor J. MacDonald-Holmes was Dean of the Faculty of Geography, University of Sydney and a truly great Australian. He followed the development of P.A Yeomans' Keyline principles from their inception in the late 1940s.

Creating Fertility. Locating Keylines

Allan Yeomans describes, in basic terms what fertile soil really is and why it is possible and practical to massively enhance the fertility levels of farm soil. Also here, is a description of valley forms and where the Keyline is, and why and how it works. And how to find it.

The Subsoil Plow Story

Keyline cultivation required a plough that didn't turn the soil layers upside down. We looked everywhere. The Texas made Graham-Hoeme Chisel Plow was the only thing we could find available anywhere in the world. We got one and used it, and then made them under license. And sold them here in Australia in the thousands. And that's why I still spell it "plow".

Video Library

A collection of relevant plow and Keyline footage and links to YouTube. Some filmed in the 1950s. Others by Darren Doherty, a long time friend of mine and a Keyline and Permaculture guru.   The Keyline concepts of farm planning, water storage and handling, accelerated soil fertility enhancement and rotational grazing, were developed on our family farms in the early 1950s.   In the 1980s, by combining these experiences with gliding meteorology I conceived the concept of enhancing soil fertility to stop global warming.

Yeomans Keyline Systems Explained

The Keyline system has changed only slightly from my father, P.A, Yeomans' original books on Keyline. The main change started in the late 1960s with our work on developing a ripper with almost zero disturbance of soil layer profiles. The modern subsoiler was born and highly accelerated Keyline soil fertility enhancement became possible and practical.

“Carbon Still” Soil Test System

To end Climate Change we pay our farmers $10 a tonne - carbon dioxide equivalent - for increasing the carbon content of their soils.  The best and most consistent measuring process for measuring this carbon increase is by measuring the Loss On Ignition (LOI) of a representative  sample of the soil. Our 'Carbon Still' does the measuring.

Cheap Solar Thermal Electricity

The only significant factors in determining the sale price of the power produced from a solar thermal installation is the cost to cover deprecation and the amount of interest on the money used to build it. That's where our Yeomans system out shines them all.

ENDING ALL CLIMATE CHANGE – Restoring the World’s biosphere to normal – Just one very LONELY OPTION.

WE HAVE DOUBLE GLAZED HALF THE PLANET.BUT THERE IS STILL A WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY LEFT TO RETURN CARBON DIOXIDE LEVELS TO NORMAL, AND END CLIMATE CHANGE.FIRST WE GET IT OUT USING SOIL. THEN WE KEEP IT OUT USING BIOFUELS AND NUCLEAR DON'T KID YOURSELF. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO, PLAN B.WE HAVE JUST ONE VERY LONELY OPTION click here--

Buttons numbered 1 through 9 are all about our subsoiling Keyline plows and how they are used to build soil fertility. There is nothing quite like them and nothing as good, anywhere in the world.

Button 12 is about fixing climate change. It details the only way we can restore world weather to normal and prevent uncontrollable, very rapid and very catastrophic biospheric overheating.

It says farming removes the atmospheres carbon dioxide overload. It says nuclear energy is absolutely essential and incredibly safe compared to anything else. And it says the campaigns to “save forests” and “plant more trees” is total agrochemical promoted tripe and bull dust. And explains why. And also shows that fixing global warming is a cost free exercise.

Buttons 10 and 11 are about other things I think are needed.

Button 13 tells you how to easy navigate around our web site.
