A US water management expert, guest of WISALTS for the last two weeks, has spent most of his time looking at water drainage and salinity 'trouble-spots' throughout the state. Eugene (Red) Doering, visited properties in Katanning, Mount Barker, Narrogin, Brookton, Quairading, Gingin, Watheroo, Dalwallinu and Dangin to assess the water movement activity here. A seminar was held by WISALTS, with Mr Doering as key speaker, last Friday and farmers and agribusiness personnel attending. He has had experience in the USA attempting to solve salt seepage and strip-mined soil problems. Mr Doering has conducted basic and applied research on drainage, salinity and reclamation problems. Currently he is an agricultural engineer ans research leader with the US Department of Agriculture.
