WISALTS column

(1987) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 29 January 1987. p. 7 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Farm productivity is what farmers are all about: producing a saleable product, be it meat, grain, grass, seeds, milk, fruit, vegetables, flowers, wood, etc. Farmers don't need a failing farm income to make the aware of decreasing productivity, they can see it as they work their farms. The one basic point to remember is that plants (whether they be pasture, crop or trees) will not grow well and happily unless the soil is healthy. One important factor contributing to a healthy soil is control of water, which is what WISALTS does through the interceptor bank system. The system is individually designed for each property by trained consultants to control water on your land, creating a better environment for your plants to produce. The main benefit of the interceptor bank system is that results are clearly visible in the first winter after installation.
