Farmer helps pioneer new form of salt control

(1984) Farmer helps pioneer new form of salt control. Border Morning Mail, 11 August 1984. p. 23 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Alec Martin is the first man in Victoria and maybe eastern Australia to use the WISALTS method to arrest soil salination on his property at Moorngag. Mr Martin met Harry Whittington at a WISALTS bank installation on a property in South Australia and subsequently flew WISALTS surveyors to his property to correctly install interceptor banks.

This article contains a photograph of Mr Martin pointing to salt affected trees.
