Harry's got salt beaten

Suttie, K. (1977) Harry's got salt beaten. Farmer and Grazier, 8 December 1977. [Publication] [Special Collections]

Summary

Article discusses Harry Whittington's salt land reclamation techniques.
In a Wait Aid Ltd report released this week, figures show that since Mr. Whittington has used his contour banks methods on his Brookton property, salinity levels have dropped dramatically.
Salinity levels were measured in four locations and compared with the state average and the reported levels in those areas in 1960.
Under Mr. Whittington's theory, the salinity has developed by land clearing and ploughing techniques.
