Determining economic rates and incorporation methods for lime in the Eastern Wheatbelt of WA locations
Aims

Main aims of the project are: • Demonstrate different methods of lime incorporation. • Assess rate responses to lime through subsoil amelioration. • Economics of lime rate by tillage method

Key messages

Deep ripping with twin disk incorporation look to be the most economic treatment for subsoil mixing, however, the results from this one year with poor yield results from a poor season would suggest otherwise.
