WA runs out of farmland

Newspaper article by Brendan Nicholson.

The Western Australian Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) announced they would not be releasing any more land for farming. The decision was motivated by a proposal in the 'Towards Salinity' paper, which aimed to reduce the salination, acidification and erosion of land used for agriculture.

This article contains two photographs: Mr Barry Carbon, EPA chairman and Mr Peter Lee, President of the Western Australian Farmer's Federation.
