Salt: the ranks close up

Collis, B. (1978) Salt: the ranks close up. Farmer and Grazier, 17 August 1978. [Publication] [Special Collections]


Article about WISALTS and its aim to promote the Whittington interceptor bank as a means of land reclamation, ensuring that only qualified people do the work.
The Agriculture Department is dubious about the system devised by Harry Whittington, and there is a history of clashes noted between the two parties,.
The department's stand means farmers cannot get finance to undertake the work, nor can they claim it as a farm tax deduction.
The department believes their research shows that the interceptor system is inadequate.
Supporters for Mr. Whittington say that he has an impressive record of research and practical experience.
