Rumours condemned

(1978) Rumours condemned. The Pingelly-Brookton Leader, 24 May 1978. [Publication] [Special Collections]


Article discusses the Minister for Agriculture, Mr. Dick Old condemning rumours that the Department of Agriculture is discouraging its officers from attending saltland reclamation field days conducted by Brookton farmer, Mr. Harry Whittington.
Mr. Old has also denied that these officers are being prevented from giving advice or help to farmers who wanted to embark on salt control projects, using methods other than those advocated by the department.
The department's officers were encouraged to attend all field days on the salt problem, regardless of who arranges them.
The department has made its resources available to help farmers, stating that the department welcomed all inquiries.
The officers will assist with surveying pf any type of salt project, but farmers will have to indicate where banks are required and how much grade is desired, if Mr. Whittington's methods are to be used.
