Messages obtained from farmers in a GRDC supported study on 27 farms in the Wallatin and O'Brien catchments 200 kilometres east of Perth are relevant to a large portion of WA's wheatbelt... The study recommended demonstration approaches to salinity management to enable farmers to draw objective conclusions about cost-effectiveness and critical success factors... The study concluded that CDI-type approaches can overcome knowledge constraints in managing salinity by fostering social learning, offering a structured process of trialling options so costs and benefits can be identified and avoiding past costly mistakes and "learning failures"...

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...
