Letters to the editor

Coote, B. (1978) Letters to the editor. The Pingelly-Brookton Leader, 5 July 1978. [Publication] [Special Collections]


In response to the letter of Mr. Negus published June 21st on the subject of Interceptor Trials set up by his department at East Pingelly in 1972, Mr. Coote explains that he is of the opinion that the road grader may have made a job good to look at, but Mr. Negus must know that the depth of surface soil to the clay subsoil would differ many times in the channel excavated.
Mr. Coote is surprised in this urgent matter of seeking to control the salt affected areas of our State is that there seems to be no desire between Mr. Negus's department and Mr. Harry Whittington, who has developed a system which has proved to be of great benefit to many farmers.
Mr. Coote suggests that Mr. Negus sit up and take notice.
