High salt hazard on the Downs

Darracott, S. (1987) High salt hazard on the Downs. Queensland Graingrower, 7 January 1987. p. 8 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Keith Hughes from the land resources branch of the Department of Primary Industries says the level of seepage salting activity on the Darling Downs demonstrates a high salting hazard. Mr Hughes said that with high value cultivation lands at risk, preventative measures should be implemented in the basalt areas.
