    The Soil CRC national survey project, Surveying On-Farm Practices, was initiated in 2019 to implement surveys in all six states, in partnership with local farming organisations. The regions were selected to represent a range of different farming systems and bioregions, with a major factor being the willingness of local groups to partner with the survey team to develop the survey and support its implementation.
    The purpose of the survey was to gain a broad understanding of the drivers of on-farm decision making across, and in-depth understanding within, Australian farming systems. This research employed a survey of all rural landholders in the Northern Wheatbelt with a land holding greater than 10 hectares. Soil CRC researchers from Southern Cross University partnered with local groups WANTFA, West Midlands Group, Wheatbelt NRM and the Liebe Group to develop and undertake the survey. This report provides the results and analyses of the that survey.
