Ripping and subsoil placement of chicken litter and fertiliser locations
Aims

To investigate ripping and subsoil placement of chicken litter and fertiliser.

Key messages
  • The nil treatment produced the highest grain yield at all sites.
  • Deep ripping treatments reduced early crop vigour and grain yield at all sites, however at the Clare sites the effect on crop vigour was less.
  • Subsoil manuring produced higher grain yields than surface manuring at 4 of 5 harvested sites.
