Saltbusters hit saline farm land

(2008) Saltbusters hit saline farm land. Countryman, 4 September 2008. p. 21 [Publication] [Special Collections]


The Salinity Rehabilitation and Extension Program is funded by State and Federal governments through the Northern Agricultural Catchments Council (NACC) and staff from the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA). NACC CEO Alan Bradley said the project fills a growing demand for skilled on-farm advice and practical assistance. Mike Clarke of DAFWA, Geraldton said that the monitoring of salinity has proven popular, with farmers asking for assistance to have scientific tests of soil and water on their properties.
