As key datasets produced by the Flinders and Gilbert Agricultural Resource Assessment become available they can be accessed through CSIRO’s Data Access Portal.
Soil-related datasets include modelled spatial data on soil properties (e.g. soil depth, soil water availability), 76 modelled irrigation land uses (i.e. crop and irrigation combinations) and modelled confidence.
Access soil-related datasets - (the technical report on Land suitability: technical methods should be consulted before these data are used)
