Trees thrive on salt banks

Piggott, M. (1983) Trees thrive on salt banks. Western Farmer and Grazier, 13 January 1983. p. 12 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Tambellup farmer Rod King is successfully growing trees for planting into interceptor banks on his property. Mr King collects his own seed for growing and sees the trees as a further measure in controlling salinity encroachment. The property's first interceptor banks were built in 1979 and planting started in 1980.

This article contains an image of Rod King standing near an interceptor bank.
