WISALTS column

(1986) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 19 June 1986. p. 12 [Publication] [Special Collections]


The first step in problem solving is to first recognise that there is a problem, and to remember that problems look different from varying points of view. What may be a massive problem to one farmer may be of little consequence to another. For example, a 70 acre salt scald that is stable and not increasing, may be of little importance on a 10,000 acre property, but that same scald is a considerable percentage of the land on a 700 acre farm. Once you have recognised that there is a problem, you then have to decide if you are going to do anything about it. You can just hope that it will go away without doing anything, you can just sit on the fence looking at possible solutions your neighbours are trying or you can call in WISALTS to help. WISALTS is full of people keen to to something about a problem, keen to try different techniques and keen to experiment and modify those techniques over the years.
