Summary

WISALTS trained consultants treat every farm with an individual approach, considering catchment needs, basic interceptor banks principles, on-site variations of soil types, topography, rainfall, and temperatures. "Grow trees" has been the catch cry to solve all soil and water degradation problems facing Australia. Yet trees in some areas shade growing crops, resulting in lower production which some farmers can ill afford. Some other varieties of trees draw water from a large lateral surface and subsurface area, denying crops essential moisture. In other areas, trees and crops will grow will together, with good crop or pasture growth to the base of the trees.
