Long term liming by incorporation trial - six years on locations
Aims

To monitor the long term effects of incorporated lime versus no incorporation.

Key messages
  • Liming decreases surface soil acidity.
  • The incorporation of lime increased the movement of the lime to the 10-20cm layer neutralising subsoil acidity.
  • Subsoil aluminium levels at this site fit WA relationships that toxic Al above 2 mg/kg occur when pH (CaCl2) is below 4.5
