Keyline design is a technique for maximizing beneficial use of water resources of a piece of land. The Keyline refers to a specific topographic feature linked to water flow. Beyond that however, Keyline can be seen as a collection of design principles, techniques and systems for development of rural and urban landscapes. Keyline design was developed in Australia by farmer and engineer P. A. Yeomans, and described and explained in his books The Keyline Plan, The Challenge of Landscape, Water For Every Farm and The City Forest.

DEDICATION 
My registered cattle brand is a Circled Y. The above sign has been used as a business sign,almost a trade mark, for a number of years, consequently it is regarded with a certain amount of affection by my family. Some years after first using it I was told that it was a veryold Northern European or Germanic symbol meaning--the living man -the signal of victory;that it derives from the ancient Sanskrit sign of life-fertility --and well being.All of these things have their foundation in fertile soil-always the dominating factor.This book is dedicated to The Fertile Soil.The health and well being of mankind depends first on the fertility of the soil.The development and custody of fertile soil is the great responsibility, of the men and women on the land.Adequate and permanent tree belts are necessary for the full protection of all the land.

BIOGRAPHY*
Percival Alfred Yeomans
(P.A.) was born in Harden N.S.W. in 1905, eldest son of a family offour. In 1928 he married Rita Irene May Barnes, also of Harden. They had three children;Neville born in 1928, Allan in 1931 and Ken in 1947. Rita Yeomans died 1964 and the twooriginal Keyline properties at North Richmond N.S.W. were sold to pay death duties.P. A. Yeomans married Jane Radek in 1966 and they had two daughters, Julie and Wendy.Following this marriage he undertook the design and construction of a different concept in cultivation equipment. He solved the need for better equipment than the chisel plow to deeplyloosen soil without bringing up the subsoil. This equipment was the first rigid shankedvibrating sub-soil cultivating ripper for use with farm tractors. It is many times moreefficient than a chisel plow, and is able to loosen more soil to a greater depth using lesstractor power.The Prince Philip Design Award officially recognised the breakthrough success of thisequipment in 1974 when P. A. Yeomans Pty Ltd received this coveted award for the BunyipSlipper Imp with Shakaerator.Manufacture of the Bunyip Slipper Imp eventually passed from P. A. Yeomans Pty Ltd to theYeomans Plow Company, which is now based at Molendinar in South-east Queensland. Thiscompany is owned and directed by Allan J. Yeomans the second son of P. A. Yeomans. Theequipment has undergone further developed including some landmark design breakthroughsand has been renamed the Yeomans Keyline Plow.P. A. Yeoman devoted much of his latter life time to consulting, advising and lecturing on Keyline planning for which he has received requests from many parts of the world.P. A. Yeomans passed away, aged 79 years, in November 1984.*by Allan Yeomans
