WISALTS column

(1983) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 23 June 1983. [Publication] [Special Collections]


Stubble burning is an accepted way of life in most of Western Australia's cropping areas. Prominent American soil scientist Dr Al Black, Director of the Northern Great Plains Research Centre in Mandan, North Dakota came out strongly against the practice during his visit in April 1983, although he did suggest that it was successful in reducing the disease factor in subsequent crops. The conclusion is that stubble burning is not satisfactory in the long term and much innovative thinking is necessary by farmers, researchers and machinery firms to overcome the disadvantages.
