  • Boosting deep-phosphorus availability in vertosols
    Boosting deep-phosphorus availability in vertosols
    Region: North, 22 Dec 2020

    Deep-banded phosphorus provides a valuable supply of nutrition several years after application, but crop access is often limited by the supply of moisture in the band. Expanding the volume of fertilised soil may offer benefits, but success will depend on fertiliser–soil interactions in target soil types.

  • Workshops to develop ‘soft’ skills for early career agronomists
    Workshops to develop ‘soft’ skills for early career agronomists
    Region: North, 21 Dec 2020

    A free-of-charge workshop series, which will include three webinars and a face-to-face workshop, will be offered in 2021 as part of the Emerging Agros Network project.

  • High yield push at Wallendbeen
    High yield push at Wallendbeen
    Region: North, 17 Dec 2020

    A trial site has been set up at Wallendbeen, New South Wales, to try and find out what it takes to push wheat and canola yields to new highs

  • Spray safely to reduce drift risk this summer
    Spray safely to reduce drift risk this summer
    Region: North, 14 Dec 2020

    Grower Relations Manager Richard Holzknecht encourages growers to reduce the risk of spray drift issues this summer.

  • Fertiliser band dynamics affect nutrient recovery
    Fertiliser band dynamics affect nutrient recovery
    Region: North, 14 Dec 2020

    Increasing the rate of phosphorus fertiliser in deep banding can deliver agronomic benefits, but may also reduce the efficiency of nutrient recovery by crops. A University of Queensland study is investigating the impact of chemical changes in the band environment.

  • AgSkilled spray training offers on-farm help for 2,4-D users
    AgSkilled spray training offers on-farm help for 2,4-D users
    Region: North, 10 Dec 2020

    The Advanced Chemical Spray Application Training course will be delivered by well-known specialist Craig Day from Spray Safe and Save.

  • Time for fertiliser calculation reboot
    Time for fertiliser calculation reboot
    Region: North, 30 Nov 2020

    A switch to no-till farming means relatively immobile nutrients such as phosphorus and potassium are often restricted to the top few centimetres. Existing soil testing guidelines may not be adequate to reflect the limited ability of roots to access these nutrients under dry conditions.

  • Declining phosphorus and potassium reserves provide top-up alert
    Declining phosphorus and potassium reserves provide top-up alert
    Region: North, 29 Nov 2020

    Reserves and availability of phosphorus and potassium vary widely in soils of the northern grains region. This is not easily predicted based on the soil type, landscape position or cropping history, yet these reserves can be an important early warning system to guide decisions.

  • Vetch trialled as a dual-purpose break crop
    Vetch trialled as a dual-purpose break crop
    Region: North, 26 Nov 2020

    Difficult-to-manage sodic and dispersive soils make growing high-value pulse crops a challenge for the Allen family, but vetch is showing promise on soils less prone to transient waterlogging

  • Chickpea harvest losses reduced with a little air
    Chickpea harvest losses reduced with a little air
    Region: North, 18 Nov 2020

    Modifying headers to include air assist can reduce chickpea harvest losses by up to 90kg/ha in low-yielding seasons
