Summary

Newspaper article by David Lloyd.

Brett Ward, a researcher working for the Department of Agriculture, made significant progress reclaiming bady degraded soil by experimenting with a range of native saltbushes and soil stabilizers like gypsum. While his work has not solved the problem of farming on hardpan, Brett's work has contributed to viable techniques for improving land quality.
