The goal of this project is to fully assess the extent of subsoil constraints across the cropping system.
This trial will undertake a comprehensive soil testing program across the whole cropping system down to 30cm, evaluating mid and subsoil characteristics. It is expected that it will take four years to monitor the soil to fully evaluate the extent of subsoil constraints across the 33,000ha cropping program. Preliminary indications have been that subsoil acidity is a limiting factor to productivity and an outcome of this investment is to make more informed input decisions to improve productivity, profitability and soil health.
Project outputs will be added once the trial has been completed.
