Identification of high quality agricultural land in the Mid West region: Stage 1 - Geraldton planning region
High quality agricultural land (HQAL) integrates existing data on soils, land capability, water resources and rainfall into the planning process. The approach generates a series of maps and accompanying tables which depict and characterise agricultural land in a way that planners and investors can readily understand. Outputs include detailed maps and tables showing a region's potential for broadacre and irrigated agriculture.
