WISALTS column

(1984) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 31 May 1984. p. 10 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Towards the middle of April, reports were carried in the rural press about the growing awareness of land degradation and the need for rehabilitation in rural areas. The Minister for Agriculture, Dave Evans stated the interest shown in forming soil conservation districts highlighted the concern, and the State Government had earmarked $125,000 for work in these districts which has 'specific community benefit' in this financial year. The Minister indicated there was also $67,000 available through the National Soil Conservation Programme and Mr. Evans was hoping that Western Australia's share of the 184/1985 Federal Budget would be more than $400,000. South Australia's plans and projects currently include, controlling water run-off, stabilise coastal and mallee sand dunes, and to revegetate arid lands.
