Description/Abstract

The management of native vegetation and agricultural land is closely related. It is vital that both native vegetation and agricultural land issues are considered within the context of their ecological area of influence. Both have a wide range of effects on each other and as a consequence should be managed together. For example native vegetation impacts on the hydrology of agricultural land. Conversely nutrients can be transferred from agricultural land to remnants of native vegetation. This booklet is one of a series covering the agricultural region of Western Australia and provides agricultural land managers with information relating to the natural resources of the Shire of Narrogin including the existing vegetation, drainage systems, soils. It also outlines some of the problems relating to the management of natural resources in the Shire of Narrogin and suggests solutions to these problems. By providing this information it is hoped this booklet will contribute to the long term viability of the agricultural landscape and the conservation of native vegetation in the Shire of Narrogin.
