Oil composition can be compromised and lead to a change in fatty acid profiles if the seed is harvested when too moist, the seed has been excessively thrashed, admixture / moisture and disease levels are too high or the temperatures in your silo reach 35 C plus for more than 3 or 4 days in a row... People in some areas have very low levels of awareness that salinity is a problem, and report a low level of salinity... The chemical fertility of soil is only one group of factors that need to be considered when producing a good crop and a good income...

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
Where dryland salinity threatens the productivity of agricultural land there is a need for farmers to formulate considered responses... From the areas identified by farmers we noticed that mid and upper slope farmers have just as much area of concern (often brackish hillside seeps) and recent outbreaks on their farms as valley floor farmers... There is a need for farmers and catchment groups to invest greater effort in risk assessment and to link the need to know to the risk at given sites...

The study set out to understand the existing constraints on the capacity to manage salinity... While recent dry seasons have meant that salinity has "gone off the boil" somewhat as an issue in Western Australia, our analysis shows that the area of saline land continues to increase on farm at the expense of farm profits and degradation of natural resources... Outcomes from the project apply to approximately 2 million hectares of low to medium rainfall mixed farming land in the WA wheatbelt along with other areas in Australia with similarities in groundwater flow systems, area of saline land, farming systems and productivity levels...
