Subsoil nutrition on clay spread soil locations

To investigate potential long term negative effects on crop yield of interactions between clay spreading or delving with subsoil nutrition (micronutrients).

Key messages
  • Incorporating clay that has high calcium carbonate (lime) content has potential to cause extreme manganese deficiency although this can be addressed with addition of micronutrient fertiliser either shallow or deep.
