  • Optimum soil sampling strategies for the west
    Optimum soil sampling strategies for the west
    Region: West, 16 Jan 2021

    The highly variable soils in Western Australia can be prone to over or under-fertilising, but a carefully considered sampling strategy can help resolve this.

  • Pulse nitrogen boost for acid soils
    Pulse nitrogen boost for acid soils
    Region: West, 10 Jan 2021

    A suite of improved rhizobia strains that are better adapted to acidic soils are being evaluated for release. Performance of the strains has been shown to be regionally specific and awareness is being raised of management practices that may affect rhizobia nodulation and activity.

  • How to minimise wind erosion after soil amelioration
    How to minimise wind erosion after soil amelioration
    Region: West, 15 Dec 2020

    Severe wind events in the Western Australian grainbelt in 2020, especially in May, demonstrated that wind erosion after summer/autumn soil amelioration is a serious problem. Both ameliorated and non-ameliorated paddocks blew, but community attention focused on recently ameliorated and exposed soil.

  • Improving crop establishment in non-wetting soil
    Improving crop establishment in non-wetting soil
    Region: West, 09 Dec 2020

    Long-term fixes to non-wetting soils, such as inverting, mixing and claying by ploughing, spading, delving and clay spreading, are expensive and unlikely to be implemented across a grower's whole non-wetting area in one or even several seasons. Shorter-term and strategies can be used on some parts of the farm while growers simultaneously fix non-wetting issues using longer-term approaches on other areas of a property.
