In most cases, what growers do to manage retained standing stubble largely depends on their seeding system, but it also can be influenced by crop rotations, weeds, diseases, pests, stubble load, harvest machinery and how much ground cover is desirable. After three consecutive La Nina years contributed to three big winter crops, many growers have found heavy stubble loads increasingly challenging at sowing.

Experimental soil treatments offer options for northern region growers wanting to overcome the constraints of dispersive soils to retain moisture and close the yield gap for their crops. More than 20 growers across Queensland and New South Wales have joined on-farm trials to supplement core experimental sites investigating how to improve soil structure and lift crop yields in the northern region.

Research into correcting soil acidification in cropping systems is showing that using different lime application techniques can suit differing soil types and farming practices. After several years, the study has revealed economically significant third-year responses in pulse crops and indicated that lime might not always need physical incorporation to deliver the greatest benefit.
