Pumping of groundwater and disposal of saline effluent (reject water) from desalination is covered by regulations requiring owners or occupiers to notify the Commissioner of Soil and Land Conservat
Farm fires will often lead to contaminated surface-water supplies: ash and soil from burnt paddocks and bushland can be blown or washed into farm dams and provide nutrients for bacteria and algae.
Chlorination effectively reduces problems with water colour, taste and odour, and treats bacterial contamination.
Measure water quality and quantity to effectively plan and monitor water supplies for livestock.
The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development works with the land-use planning system to ensure that land and water resources are available for agriculture and food businesses to ex
The table below provides suggested maximum velocities of surface water flow on various soils. This information can be used when designing surface water management structures.
Salt is a natural component of land, water and ecological systems in Western Australia. Large areas of naturally saline land (primary salinity) were present before European settlement.
Don’t send water and fertiliser dollars down the drain. When it comes to irrigation systems, one size does not fit all.
Matching water supply in the soil to crop demand using good irrigation practice is important to produce a high quality potato crop.
Over-application of fertiliser nutrients can cause growth and quality problems in vegetable crops.
