Deep Ripping on deep white sands - East Gibson locations
Aims

To determine how long the ripping effect lasts for in a controlled traffic farming (CTF) system and when to repeat the deep ripping on deep sands

Key messages
  • Rip to below your compacted layer
  • Ripping to 60cm reduced soil strength, and this effect continued into the second year after ripping
  • Wheat yield response to the 60cm rip treatment paid for deep ripping in the first year
  • Important to understand potential yield benefits of ripping before you rip
