Claying involves adding and incorporating clay-rich subsoil into water repellent topsoil to overcome the repellence.
Waterlogging causes significant reductions in plant growth in some years and some environments in the high rainfall (greater than 600 mm annual rainfall) areas of South West Western Australia.
Waterlogging is a common problem in the agricultural soils of south-west Western Australia in the wetter months of winter.
