The Kulin Region is one of the most agriculturally productive districts in the WA Wheatbelt. Agriculture in the Kulin region relies on an annual rainfall of 350mm, of which 75% falls during the growing season. Soil types are very mixed – from sandplain and sandy duplex soils, through to loamy gravels and grey clay. Cropping occupies approximately two thirds of the land use though this can vary from 50% through to 100%. Wheat is by far the major crop grown, followed by barley. Canola, lupins and field peas are also grown in rotation to provide improved soil nutrition and weed control. Pasture for stock grazing is the other major land use which provides benefits for cropping as well as diversification of income.

Natural Resource Management (NRM) is the sustainable management of Australia's natural resources (our land, water, marine and biological systems). NRM is vital to ensure our ongoing social, economic and environmental wellbeing. Many landholders and community members in the Kulin Region are very proactive in helping to care for the environment which supports the main industry for the region – agriculture.
The Shire of Kulin falls under both the Wheatbelt Natural Resource Management and South West Catchments Council regions. There are many NRM organisations who can offer a range of support services and resources for individuals, groups and organisations involved in NRM or looking to undertake an NRM/conservation project. They can also assist in funding applications and grants.
Holt Rock Group - The Holt Rock Group works to improve the sharing of information within the agronomy group to help it's members improve their farming business. The group is interested in agronomy, grain marketing, community welfare, sustainability and business structure.
