Water use of wheatbelt crop and pasture species Location: 83WH29 - Wongan Hills Research Station, Wongan Hills Abstract. A comprehensive experiment to investigate the productivity and water use of important wheatbelt crop and pasture species was undertaken in 1983. The experiment has provided important information on potential crop and pasture productivity and the role of alternate crop and pasture species in managing groundwater recharge and the development of secondary salinity.
