pH Mapping and potash trials locations
Aims
  • To investigate the benefits of a range of spatial datasets including soil pH mapping, satellite imagery, yiled maps.
  • To compare different potash rates in areas of paddocks which are believed to be potash deficient.
Key messages

Agronomists and farmers throughout the Glenthompson region appreciate the presence of potassium deficinancy, however little has been done to understand the spatial distribution across the landscape. This demonstration trial has utilised a range of spatial technologies, strategic soil sampling and local knowledge to determine opportunites for variable rate potash.
