WISALTS column

(1984) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 3 May 1984. p. 82 [Publication] [Special Collections]


WISALTS column discusses the Whittington Interceptor Bank System and the advice "look to the top of the hill for the source of the problem". Eugene (Red) Doering, of North Dakota endorsed this advice when he visited Western Australia and investigated not only the WISALTS techniques but other avenues of solving the soil degradation problems. Mr Doering said the source of the problem is always upslope of the problem, and agreed that other factors downslope near the problem area may aggravate it, but the initial cause is always up above. The article discusses the methods employed in the North Dakota farming areas, including recharge areas feeding the problem.
