WISALTS column

(1984) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 5 April 1984. p. 119 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Salinity, says WISALTS field officer Laurie Adamson, is the least of our problems. It is one of the most spoken of problems confronting our landscape but farmers' lack of knowledge and understanding soil assets is astounding. As is the apathy about doing something positive to rectify the deterioration of soils and reduced production. At least one many has discovered to read the signs and he developed a sound practical method of control and recovery. Harry Whittington of Brookton, with a lifetime of trial and error on 'Springhill', gradually evolved the principles on which the WISALTS system is founded.
