WISALTS column - Waterlogging!

(1984) WISALTS column - Waterlogging! Elders Weekly, 2 February 1984. p. 31 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Waterlogging is sometimes described as a forerunner of salinity, but does not always become a saline seep. WISALTS field officer, Laurie Adamson has pointed out that when waterlogging of any description occurs, crops both shallow and deep rooted lose their vigour, pastures deteriorate allowing diseases to take over and production from your land falls. Mr Adamson recommends watching for a change in the colour of the tree canopy in or near the creek line, keeping an eye on the formation of dampness or pools in the creeks which may have over recent years, been dry. The aim must be to have a worthwhile effective water control system. The Whittington Interceptor Banks, when surveyed and installed properly help control the water.
