Barriers to voluntary improvement of residential fertiliser practices in the Peel-Harvey Catchment

Beckwith, J.A. and Clement, S. (2013) Barriers to voluntary improvement of residential fertiliser practices in the Peel-Harvey Catchment. Australian Journal of Water Resources, 17 (1). pp. 65-76.

Abstract

The adoption of best practices in residential lawn and garden fertiliser use has been identified as a cost effective means to reduce urban nutrient inputs to waterways. This article examines the barriers to such voluntary change in urban sub-catchments of the Peel-Harvey Estuary system in Western Australia. The implications for the design and successful implementation of a voluntary community-based behavioural change program targeting residential fertiliser practices are discussed.
