WISALTS column

(1985) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 22 August 1985. p. 9 [Publication] [Special Collections]


WISALTS column discusses the value of knowledge on a subject and how it increases as time goes on. Applying this to WISALTS, and the interceptor bank system, this statement holds true. The spread of this water control system over most of the agricultural areas of Western Australia and into parts of the Eastern States, different soil types and climatic conditions have meant that WISALTS and its consultants have come a long way in a short time in gaining knowledge about solving some of the problems affecting farm productivity. Since the original banks were installed, WISALTS have regularly inspected the Dan Keast trial site near Dangin, and have agreed that it was in need of some reconstruction work. Laurie Adamson, WISALTS field officer, said that the test site has now been repaired to the best of WISALTS present knowledge, skills and workmanship.
