DPIRD delivers a series of free Soil Systems Master Classes to help farming businesses become more resilient, profitable and sustainable, while capturing carbon opportunities.
Use this calculator to evaluate your soil sample results, and to estimate soil nutrient status and requirements, and the fertiliser quantities to supply those nutrients.
This page provides information links specific to nutrient management of high rainfall pastures (more than 600 mm average annual rainfall) in the south-west of Western Australia.
Nitrogen application is common and profitable in dairy cattle grazing rotations and may also be profitable for strategic applications in beef grazing and for hay production.
The linked calculator is only for high rainfall (>600 mm annual) pastures in South West Western Australia.
Soil testing and plant analysis are valuable tools to diagnose constraints to crop and pasture production.
Soil sampling and testing is an essential part of making good fertiliser decisions. Fertilisers are a large cost to farming pastures in high rainfall areas.
This page contains information about managing nutrition in canola crops in Western Australia.
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.
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
