Two new directions

(1986) Two new directions. Elders Weekly, 24 July 1986. p. 10 [Publication] [Special Collections]


The Department of Primary Industry in Canberra is sponsoring two new directions for soil conservation in Australia. It wants to integrate soil conservation activities and to attack the acidification of Australian soils. The administrator of the National Soil Conservation Programme, Lindsay Northop said the Department had called in March for applications for assistance under the programme during 1986-1987. Mr Northop said if systems could be developed and can be integrated into the farm's regular programme, then farmers would be more likely to adopt them. Soil conservation is mainly a State Government and private farmer responsibility. The role for the Commonwealth Government, via the national Soil Conservation Programme, is to attempt to pick the gaps and to encourage projects in areas not currently covered.
