Report wants land degradation stopped

(1986) Report wants land degradation stopped. Elders Weekly, 16 October 1986. p. 11 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Wide-ranging measures to help farmers halt land degradation and the salinisation of water resources in Western Australia are proposed in a new State Government report. The proposed measures aim to help conserve the native bushland that remains in farming areas and to foster replanting in strategic cleared areas. The report, "Conservation of Native Vegetation in Farming Areas", was prepared by the Land Resource Policy Council. Releasing the report, Premier Brian Burke said there would be three months for public discussion and comment before the government made decisions about the proposals.
