Ameliorating a deep repellent sand at Murlong increased wheat performance substantially in 2018

David Davenport (Rural Solutions SA), Mel Fraser (Rural Solutions SA), Nigel Wilhelm (SARDI), Brett Masters (Rural Solutions SA)

Aims:

Previous research has shown that physical intervention on compacted sandy soils can deliver significant yield increases. However, deep incorporation can be expensive and can increase erosion risk. The development of inclusion plates attached to deep ripping tynes allows for deep mixing of surface applied nutrients at a relatively low cost and wi… read more

Aims:

Barley grass continues to be a persistent grassy weed in low rainfall farming systems and current farming practices have selected for increased seed dormancy. This change in seed dormancy has resulted in Barley grass germinating later, and being much harder to control with knockdown and pre-emergent herbicides. In 2018 a range of herbicide strat… read more
