Dryland farming systems rely on the soil to store and release water and nutrients to meet crop demand. Soil water storage is dynamic and changes as a result of a balance between water inputs (rainfall, irrigation) and outputs including evaporation, plant transpiration, runoff, and deep drainage beyond the root zone. Soil water managements ultimate aim is to improve the . Stoneman, T.C. and Whitely, K.T. (). The Perillup soil survey. Agricultural land use in the district ranges from mixed 1.

Smith, R.I. Herr. A survey of land degradation was undertaken in New South Wales, Australia during – The aims of the survey were to assess the location, extent, and severity of ten forms of degradation and to present the data in map and statistical form.

Soil science is still a new tool for most planners, but I believe that the soil capability analysis soon will be as basic to our art, and science, as the land use inventory, the traffic count, and the population projection.

By managing structure, nutrients and biology in the soil, farmers can use soils within their capability so that the soils can be used productively without being degraded. To maintain and improve soil health, farmers need to manage their production system.
