Proofed against threats of future

Lloyd, D. (1989) Proofed against threats of future. Elders Weekly, 8 June 1989. p. 43 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Newspaper article by David Lloyd.

An in-depth look at the conservation measures put in place by Bronte Rundle on his property at Katanning. The property did not have significant salinity threats when Mr Rundle began working on the property, however his approach preempted any such issues in the future.

The Rundle's used several key strategies to control water flow on their property, such as high quality fencing, WISALTS interceptor banks and strategically planting the right type of tree to ensure optimum water balance.

This article contains a photograph of Bronte Rundle with trees on his property.
