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.
The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development will contribute to conferences on soil health by highlighting research undertaken on a range of practices to overcome soil constraints
The challenge of managing soil acidity through tailored lime treatments continues to be an international dilemma, as two Western Australian scientists discovered during a recent study tour of South
Acid soils cause significant losses in production and biomass, which restricts the ability to sequester carbon.
The effect of mechanical incorporation of different lime rates on crop yield and subsurface pH was observed four seasons after application.
Mechanical incorporation of different lime rates using offset disc, Grizzly Tiny offsets® and deep ripping treatments were tested.
Amelioration of soil pH in poor soil patches in paddocks was tested using lime application and deep ripping treatments.
Mechanical incorporation of different lime rates using Grizzly Tiny offset® plough, deep ripping and cultivator points were tested.
If you are deep-ripping, ploughing or spading to remove subsurface compaction or another constraint, it is a good idea to incorporate lime in the same operation.
