WISALTS column

(1983) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 26 May 1983. p. 45 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Recap of a speech given by prominent American soil scientist Dr Al Black, Director of the Northern Great Plains Research Centre in Mandan, North Dakota during his recent visit to Western Australia. Dr Black said that he felt the crop rotation research would be beneficial as farmers and the Department of Agriculture were showing signs of wanting to reduce the amount of water coming from the scald areas on the valley floor. Dr Black also said that the Whittington Bank System, where properly installed, was very effective in cutting off the shallow water movement to the salt scalds and waterlogged areas in the valley floors.
