Agronomic strategies for water repellent soils in WA - mouldboard ploughing, deep ripping and lime incorporation
  • To determine if the addition of lime and its method of incorporation (none/control, MBP or deep rip) has an effect on the soil pH profile and crop productivity.
  • To compare the impact of mouldboard ploughing and deep ripping on topsoil water repellence compared to an untreated control.

Comparing the influence of organic matter and fertiliser inputs on soil organic carbon and grain production

To identify on-farm management strategies to increase soil organic carbon (SOC) and quantify any associated risks and benefits in a grain production system. In this trial the NSPNR wanted to detrmine whether: Altering inputs to increase plant biomass would subsequently increase soil carbon, and amending soils with compost would increase soil carbon storage or provide agronomic benefits.
