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.
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.
Bring along your operating widths and tracks of your machinery to develop your own controlled traffic farming (CTF) investment plan. We will be using an internet based calculator to help us;...
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.
Amelioration of soil pH in poor soil patches in paddocks was tested using lime application and deep ripping treatments.
On water-repellent loamy gravels (forest gravels) banded soil wetting agents and one-off deep tillage can significantly improve crop establishment, growth and grain yield.
Mechanical incorporation of different lime rates using Grizzly Tiny offset® plough, deep ripping and cultivator points were tested.
