Brookton farmer congratulated

Curtis, V. (1976) Brookton farmer congratulated. The Countryman, 23 January 1976. p. 6 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Mrs. V. Curtis of Kellerberrin writes in to congratulate Brookton farmer, Mr. H. Whittington for his far-sighted attitude on dealing with a salt problem on his property.
Skeleton weed outbreaks in different parts of the state receives far more publicity than the spread of salt.
In Mrs. Curtis' view, farmers seem to have a strange attitude towards the salt problem and listening to remarks made by many of them, concludes that the farmers would consider selling the farm when faced with spreading salt patches.
Mrs. Curtis continues with the view that the farmer is proving to be his worst enemy because in over-clearing his property to get more income, he is allowing the salt an avenue to take over.
