2019 Soil Constraints Tour

The northern ag region has a wealth of experience applying soil renovation practices long-term and will be featured at this year's Soil Constraints tour. The two-day field tour will begin and end in Geraldton each day, touring the north on Tuesday 6 August and the south and east on  Wednesday 7 August.

Participants will enjoy networking, discussions and learning about identifying, diagnosing, and managing multiple constraints. A mixture of trials and growers will be visited to learn how managing soils can fit into the farming system and the longevity of the benefits.

This tour is a collaboration between GRDC/DPIRD Soil Constraints West projects DAW00236, DAW00242, DAW00243, DAW00244, DAW00252 and Soil Constraints West II projects DAW1902_003RTX, DAW1901-006RTX and DAW1902-001RTX.
