Project Aim

The primary aim of this trial is to investigate which soil renovation technique proves to help the most with water conservation.

 

Project Description

Through the use of a soil moisture probe this project will explore the potential role of biotechnology in helping Western Australian cropping and pastoral industries meet the challenges of climate change and help farmers adapt their farm management systems to meet the predicted impacts of climate change.  The data from the moisture probes will be used to inform growers about which amelioration techniques to utilise for moisture retention.

The project will demonstrate the differences in soil amelioration practices and monitor the impact these have on:

  • water holding capacity;
  • water infiltration.

 

Project Outputs

Project outputs will be added once the trial has been completed.
