Saltland pastures are associations of salt- and waterlogging-tolerant plants that produce fodder for grazing animals from areas of the landscape affected by salinity and waterlogging. They have been planted and grazed in Western Australia (WA) since the late 19th century and their use has been promoted actively since the 1940s.
Saline land consists of a range of ecological zones of differing productivity created by variations in the severity of salinity, waterlogging and inundation. About half of WA’s saline land is suited to various kinds of saltland pasture. The remainder is too saline and should be fenced to allow it to revegetate naturally with samphire and salt- and waterlogging-tolerant trees like swamp sheoak.
