Letters to the editor

Negus, T.R. (1978) Letters to the editor. The Pingelly-Brookton Leader, 19 July 1978. [Publication] [Special Collections]


A response from T.R. Negus, Officer-in-charge to comments made by Mr.L.J. Messenger and Mr. Bill Coote, published July 5.
Comments from Mr. Messenger to criticise the Department of Agriculture for not treating the whole catchment areas above the salt-affected land with seepage interceptors on our trials at East Pingelly are inaccurate as the main site has four interceptors from the salt area to a mallet hill some 40 chains upslope.
Mr. Coote's comments that Mr. Negus was not heeding the value of the interceptor banks, but this is disputed as Mr. Negus visited Mr. Whittington's property for the first time in 1971, and will continue until the farming community has sorted out the wheat from the chaff on this issue.
