WISALTS column

(1984) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 1 March 1984. p. 83 [Publication] [Special Collections]

Summary

A quote from the 1982 Wall Street Journal, "Farmland, unlike oil and other natural resources, can be renewable". This quote seems in contrast with comments on 'Heartlands' (ABC TV) when Dean Graetz stated that once our land, our heartland had gone it would not come back. Farmland can be renewable, but it takes time and dedication by the farmer. Conservation farming means a radical change in farming methods to conserve the soil and build it up, watching for eroding spots, maintaining cover on our paddocks, and conserving water. The Whittington Interceptor Bank System is trying to play its part in creating awareness and offering a solution to some of our soil degradation problems. The WISALTS method can be seen in action at the Wickepin WISALTS Branch Field Day on Friday 16 March.
