Some farming areas in Australia have been degraded by agricultural practices that result in rises in the water table that bring salt to the surface and reduce the quality of runoff water and the yield from pasture and crops. There is a need for a balanced choice of land uses that can reduce the salinity problem. A framework is proposed that uses catchment data and a hydrology model to predict areas with high rates of recharge and to identify sites for land use change.
