Significant reduction in stream and floodplain salinity, and reversal of valley salinisation; low dissolved salts indicating reduced export of site’s nutrient capital.
Prior to implementation
Increased pasture productivity and substantial agronomic and environmental improvements on the farm, with increased aquifer storage providing effective subsurface pasture irrigation; reduced velocities of stream and floodplain flow velocity, reducing channel incision and soil erosion; recreation of a "chain of ponds" system, colonised by dense reed beds; a sustainable farming system with very low inputs of chemical fertiliser through the effective internal cycling of nutrients .
Major (positive) changes to soil chemical and biological properties.
