The day that paradise died

Piggott, M. (1984) The day that paradise died. Western Farmer and Grazier, 6 September 1984. p. 51 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Newspaper article by Max Piggott.

Speaking at a farm walk on salt affected land at the Denbarker property of Jim Erskine, WISALTS pioneer Harry Whittington told salinity conscious farmers that other soil changes preceded the emergence of salt. The farm walk was undertaken to choose a site on the Erskine's property for the proposed WISALTS salinity control trial site.

This article includes two photographs, both showing a group of farmers with Harry Whittington attending a farm walk on salt affected land.
