Summary

Soil, or rather, land degradation is often stated to be Australia's number one problem. The Federal Government currently has an inquiry into land degradation and the Western Australian Government has an inquiry into salinity (one form of land degradation) which gives an indication of the concern about the problem. For the Federal Government to allocate the amount they do to soil conservation needs some rethinking if they are really serious about solving the problem. They do give individuals some incentive: all soil conservation is 100 per cent tax deductible in the year of expenditure. So you don't have to feel guilty about claiming that tax deduction for making your land more productive.
