Abstract: On-ground works completed at Larrawa station producer demonstration site in 2011 focussed on building open water ponds and collecting data on their cost($) to construct. Water ponding is a proven regeneration technique developed in western New South Wales, helping to slow down overland water flow and increase infiltration, thereby increasing soil moisture available for plant growth. Ninety ponds were built at Larrawa station in 2011. The amount of water ponded at each pond ranged between 10 cm and 15 cm. Data were collected on pond length, ponded height and time to construct. Two permanent Rangeland Condition Monitoring sites were installed. Two different sized machines (road graders) were compared; 16G and 12G. The model 16G grader is significantly larger and more powerful than the model 12G.
