WISALTS column

(1986) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 5 June 1986. p. 6 [Publication] [Special Collections]


"A little competition never did anyone or anything any harm". So states the President of WISALTS, Lex Hardie, in a letter to all members in the most recent issue of the society newsletter, WISALTS news. Mr Hardie was referring to one of the more positive happenings in the soil conservation scene in the last 18 months, the emergence of private soil conservation consultants. He says, when one considers the enormous soil degradation problems staring down the barrel of the rural industry in Australia, there is a real need for more competition in the field of soil conservation consultants. Generally speaking farmers know there is a problem, but they find it difficult to come to grips with a direction to attack that problem.
