Heading off a salt problem

(2004) Heading off a salt problem. The Furrow, 2004. pp. 10-11 [Publication] [Special Collections]


A case study of the efficacy of interceptor banks for controlling subsurface water accumulation on farmland. Barry Hardie advocates the use of interceptor banks, a technique the Hardie family learned from WISALTS, since they combat salinity, redirect water to dams and allow greater access and care to the land during wet season.

This article contains three images: a growth of healthy trees next to a long-dead fallen tree; a canal redirecting subsurface water out of a valley; and Barry Hardie's son, Clayton, using a divining rod.
