Fight against salt gains momentum

(1981) Fight against salt gains momentum. Western Farmer and Grazier, 26 November 1981. p. 2 [Publication] [Special Collections]


The Western Farmer and Chamberlain John Deere Fight Against Salt competition is gaining momentum with 40 entries received to date. The competition is designed to recognise the efforts of a farmer who has shown initiative and foresight in the fight against the encroachment of salt by rewarding him a prize of a $6,000 chisel plough from Chamberlain John Deere. Chamberlain john Deere's Western Australian branch manager, Geoff Ruchs said that the large number of entries received to date reflected the significance and severity of the salt problem in Western Australia. The 40 farmers who have entered to date were probably on the tip of the iceberg.

This article contains a photograph of Western Farmer staffers Romy Dabelstein, Sam Andreata and Loditta Haley looking through the competition entries.
