Fluid delivery of trace elements - Part II locations
Aims

To evaluate the yield response to trace elements using a fluid delivery system compared to other techniques.

Key messages
  • Trace elements can be added to a farming system via a fluid delivery system.
  • Economic responses to trace elements did not occur in non-responsive situations regardless of form of application.
  • Addition of N and P to trace element fluid fertiliser did not appear to enhance trace element uptake.
  • Lower cost foliar applied trace elements offer a cheaper approach to trace element application whilst still providing economic returns.
