A series of field experiments have been established across the grainbelt in recent months as part of a new project that aims to increase the benefits and profitability generated by soil amelioratio
A new guide has been published to assist cereal growers to identify frost damage and consider crop management decisions.
Growers in low rainfall areas with predominantly acidic soils have the potential to increase wheat yields by up to 30 per cent by combining lime and gypsum applications to their soils.
Taking experimental measurements can be labour intensive and time consuming, in addition the methods chosen must be repeatable (regardless of operator) with small degrees of error.
Tertiary students wanting to make their mark on Western Australia’s grains sector are reminded that applications close soon for research and development post-graduate scholarships.
The innovative use of drones to precisely assess soil erosion will save time and money for WA growers.

Plant available water (PAW) is a key determinant of potential yield in dryland agriculture.
This page hosts the 2018 frost trial information, handy project resources and the frost severity maps (from August).
Western Australian grain growers are set to reap the rewards of a significant investment in new soil nutrition research that will boost crop production and reduce fertiliser costs.
