The aim of the survey, based on responses of 16 farmers in the West Mortlock and Upper Yilgarn catchments in Western Australia was to determine: farmers' beliefs and attitudes towards land use strategies and practices; key community drivers, motivators and other factors in the community which impact on farmer decision-making; perceived control factors that facilitate or impede behaviour and their power; farmers views on land use management on their farm and in the region.
