Abstract

Farmers in Western Australia have reported that they have 181,556 acres of land which has been used for crops or pastures but is now badly affected by salt encroachment. Two thousand, three hundred and five out of a total of 10,576 said that salt land is increasing on their farms. But, on the brighter side, 9,741 said that, on their farms, salt encroachment is not a major problem. Only 835 regard it as a major problem. The 10,576 farms cover 27 million acres.
