Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The cost of soil acidity to agriculture is recognised as being great, especially in Western Australia where the most recent analysis estimates 30% of dryland agricultural soils have subsurface acidity - or are at high risk of developing subsurface acidity - which causes a decline in wheat yield of between 20 and 40% (GRDC Project UWA00081)... The most recent analysis estimates that 30% or 5-6 million hectares of dryland agricultural soils have subsurface acidity or are at high risk of developing subsurface acidity which causes a decline in wheat yield of between 20 and 40% (GRDC Project UWA00081)... The experience and machinery developed as a result of this work is currently being passed on and used by the SIP08 project UWA00081 and will be used where applicable by Wal Anderson's new GRDC project 'Enhancing paddock profitability - a collaborative diagnostic approach to cropping systems research'...
