Description :

Letter to the editor of The Advertiser expressing concern about the degradation of the River Murray caused by the practices of cotton and rice irrigators

Many South Australians have felt strongly enough about the issue of irrigating upstream cotton and rice crops with River Murray water that they have written to The Advertiser newspaper to express their concerns.  These letters from 2002 and 2003 show how people were feeling about the economic, environmental and social impact of using flood irrigation to water dryland crops in Queensland and New South Wales.
