Hot answer for regeneration

(1987) Hot answer for regeneration. Elders Weekly, 17 September 1987. p. 6 [Publication] [Special Collections]

Summary

Electric suspension fencing is playing an important role in the regeneration of previously degraded country along the Fitzroy Valley in the Kimberley. The fencing was part of the first stage of an ambitious programme to regenerate the degraded frontage country on the Fitzroy River. It is the first demonstration project for Western Australia's first soil conservation district in a pastoral area. Department of Agriculture herbicide trials also showed that woody weeds could be controlled under electric fences.
