GRS - Marek Matuszek (UT) The effect of crop rotation and irrigation on WUE and soil health of grain crop production in Tasmania

Plain text source: 
The project assesses how strategic irrigation can be used to overcome the complexities of duplex soils to maximise yield and water-use efficiency (WUE) of barley through maximising root depth and distribution... To date, field trials with barley have been conducted in the 2009 and 2010 growing seasons under contrasting irrigation regimes in Cambridge, Tasmania on a duplex soil (output 1)... Strategic irrigation of barley was demonstrated to have a positive influence on grain yield, rooting depth and distribution in duplex soils...
