Research at Mount Barker

(1985) Research at Mount Barker. Elders Weekly, 1985. [Publication] [Special Collections]


Article discusses the research project at Mount Barker from the Wisalts perspective.
The WISALTS State Committee has been considering the research project for over 12 months.
Mr. James Erskine and his family agreed that the Erskine property could be used for the project and a small WISALTS group visited to determine what data was wanted at the end of the project.
Some of the data that the committee wanted to be collected was not possible because the Department of Agriculture had no expertise available.
Local WISALTS Branch Secretary, Jim McGregor contacted all his branch members with around 18 farming families represented.
After more discussion the group agreed on the final choice of research site, a catchment with a typical salt scald at the lower end with a great deal of waterlogging with damage evident.
