Soil controls under study

(1983) Soil controls under study. The Guardian, 25 November 1983. p. 5 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Farming techniques in north-west Victoria could change dramatically if results from experiments in weed control in Western Australia can be adapted to suit local conditions. According to Tom Speedie, a regional soil conservationist with the Soil Conservation Authority, farmers in Western Australia are already making extensive use of herbicides and direct drilling as a method of sowing cereal and legume crops.

This article contains a photograph of Tom Speedie examining a Whittington Interceptor bank with John Butters, Peter Jolly, John Jones and Kevin Vivian.
