The series, available for free from Apple Books, is published by SoilsWest - an alliance between the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) and Western Australian universities.

Murdoch University is the headquarters of SoilsWest, which was previously at the University of Western Australia.

Experts from a range of organisations, and farmers, contributed their knowledge, best practice techniques and stories to the ebooks. The publications bring together soil science and its practical application, harnessing years of soil research, as well as first-hand accounts from landholders about their experience with soil management in Western Australia.
