Results of a Western Australian bio-economic model (MIDAS) suggest that increasing the productivity of forage shrubs growing on salt-affected farmland can substantially increase whole farm profitability. Agronomic experimentation has shown that such improvements in productivity are achievable by deep ripping soils to reduce subsoil compaction, adding low levels of fertiliser, planting on less saline land and choosing more appropriate genotypes.
