Banks questioned

(1982) Banks questioned. Esperance Express, 1 July 1982. [Publication] [Special Collections]


Lower West Province MLC Neil McNeill said WISALTS appealed to many farmers as it was a positive scheme - although he could not judge if it was better or worse than others available. The WISALTS scheme has the advantage of having a considerable extension value as way of demonstration. People have been given maximum opportunity to see in a positive way a demonstration of the techniques Mr Whittington and his colleagues have been able to develop throughout the State. Mr McNeill was concerned work by the Agriculture Department and soil conservation service did not get the same publicity WISALTS had and therefore not the same acceptance. He also said that he believed the work done by the soil conservation service has been first class in a technical way and on balance its theories are probably more correct than the WISALTS theories.
