The First Kalanning Interdisciplinary Research Forum convened on Wednesday, 18 September 1996 at the Kobeelya Conference Centre, Katanning, Western Australia. The Forum was organised by the Katanning District Office of Agriculture WA and had the following objectives:

• To improve understanding of the interdisciplinary implications of research

• To raise awareness of research projects • To help focus future research and interdisciplinary collaboration

• To gain and offer constructive criticism

This publication contains the abstracts of the Forum. The topics of research covered, range from soil mapping and management, weed control, water use efficiency, crop and pasture management, through to sheep production and genetics. There should be something of interest to everyone involved in Agriculture. Throughout the Forum the main theme of the interdisciplinary nature of research has been addressed. We believe that the review of research results and proposed experimentation programs in a multidisciplinary context ensures a greater insight into the complex interactions which must be understood in order to find sustainable solutions to agricultural problems.
