Sad tale in Narrogin

(1986) Sad tale in Narrogin. Elders Weekly, 26 June 1986. p. 6 [Publication] [Special Collections]


The sad tale of storm damage in the Narrogin area for over 30 years which has emphasised the need for good soil conservation, according to Tim Negus, officer in charge of the Department of Agriculture's Narrogin office. Each year since 1955, some part of the Narrogin advisory district had been affected by severe wind, hail, drought or thunderstorms. The big cyclone of February 1955 caused severe gully erosion and flooded many areas. Some 125 mm of rain fell in a 12 day period in June/July 1983, causing widespread soil erosion which soil conservation staff and farmers had still not been able to repair.
