Salinity is one of the greatest environmental threats facing Western Australia. Extension of salinity information to WA farmers is a key process in helping the rural community manage this threat. Published information is an important part of this extension. However, there has been very little research into the use and effectiveness of published salinity information. The aim of this study was to investigate:

• Effectiveness of current salinity information products and services in relation to decision making and practice change by WA farmers;

• Possible improvement in salinity publications to better assist WA farmers in decision making and practice change.
