Project background

Wind erosion has been acknowledged by researchers and farmers to be a significant factor contributing to land degradation. In the past few years, severe wind events have been more common due to the changing climate throughout Western Australia. Whilst most research is seen to have been conducted in the more southern areas of Western Australia (https://www.agric.wa.gov.au/wind-erosion/managing-wind-erosion-southern-western-australia), the impact throughout the Wheatbelt is increasing. As such, it is important to demonstrate these mitigation practices for the local region to address.
