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
Department of Agriculture and Food soil experts are hosting a tour for growers next month to showcase soil management research being undertaken across the southern part of the state.
Controlled traffic farming (CTF) is a system that delivers unparalleled improvements in productivity and sustainability. Farmers who are pushing the envelope of what CTF makes possible are...
Grain growers looking to take advantage of recent rainfall and start deep ripping paddocks are being warned their soils may still be too wet and they may do more harm than good.
All the latest natural resource information from across the vast State of Western Australia is now available from Department of Agriculture and Food’s website – for free.
Livestock producers in the Great Southern and South West are reminded to act quickly to take part in a soil testing program to reduce nutrient loss off farm and optimise fertiliser use.

Banding soil wetting agents with the seed can improve establishment on water repellent soils often having the same effect as seed placement on the furrow surface.
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.
