This report card summarises our current knowledge of the status and trend in the natural resource base in the agricultural areas of south-west of Western Australia and provides a discussion of the implications for agricultural industries.

The condition of our natural resources is a complex interaction of numerous processes. In simple terms however, the performance of the land is driven by three primary factors: climate, land characteristics and land management. The first two factors are largely out of the control of land managers, and in a drying and variable climate, land management practices need to be able to respond quickly to changing conditions.
