WISALTS column

(1986) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 24 July 1986. p. 10 [Publication] [Special Collections]


The field officer's report to each committee meeting of WISALTS is always, as mentioned last issue, of interest and value. Laurie Adamson, the field officer, puts in a good amount of detail so that members of committee (who come from all over the state) develop their wider knowledge and understanding. Discussion on suggestions contained in the report (and there are usually quite a few) often provokes some lively discussion around the table - and action often follows! in addition, Mr Adamson's observations succintly summarise points needing attention by the society at large and the committee in particular. He doesn't believe in pulling punches, so comments are fairly direct: he is very concerned the very best job is done where soil and water conservation is concerned. Any new work should be balanced re-working old, early banks where required. Farmers with early work on their properties who feel it is not performing should contact their original surveyor, or the Society to arrange for an inspection and advice.
