Baking bread to breeding flies

Zekulich, M. (1978) Baking bread to breeding flies. The West Australian, 11 September 1978. p. 8 [Publication] [Special Collections]

Summary

Article explains that the $24 million a year that the Agriculture Department receives is not only from Western Australian farmers and graziers.
The department is undergoing a challenge on the question of salt encroachment on farm land.
A Brookton farmer, Mr. Harry Whittington and the department are at odds on the right way to tackle the controversial and costly problem of salt encroachment.
At its South Perth headquarters, and at around 50 other centres in W.A., extensive advisory and research aid is available to the community.

This article contains four images, one photograph of Paul Freeland checking baked bread in the grain products laboratory; one photograph of Marcia Schorer, a laboratory assistant conducting a purity test on wheat; one image of Mr. J. Scott, an attendant, inspecting aquatic plants, and technical officer, Tony Tapper with pollen from a pollen-trapping hive.
