Claying improves the productivity of sandy soils.. Despite years of clay being spread over sandy soils to improve water-holding capacity, little is known about its impact on the soils' nutrient content... As part of the GRDC-funded More Profit from Crop Nutrition (MPCN) initiative, researchers from the Department of Agriculture and Food, WA (DAFWA) and Murdoch University are exploring the potential to improve crop nutrition after claying...

Paddock records help: establish realistic target grain yield/protein levels prior to planting modify target yield/protein levels based on previous crop performance, planting soil moisture, planting time, fallow conditions, expected in-crop seasonal conditions and grain quality requirements determine appropriate fertiliser type, rate and application method compare expected with actual performance per paddock and modify fertiliser strategies to optimise future yield/protein levels... Valuable information obtainable from a soil test includes current nutrient status, acidity or alkalinity (pH), soil salinity (Electrical Conductivity (EC)) and sodicity (Exchangeable Sodium Percentage (E)), which can affect soil structure... Water volumes of 800-1 000 L/ha were commonly applied...

Strategy: Avoid using Picloram in sorghum crops if double cropping back into chickpeas... In the short term, the decision on row spacing and planter configuration will in most cases be largely determined by the: planting equipment and machinery available at the time current paddock and farm layout tillage practices... Growers must seriously consider planting time, and weigh up the potential yield benefits of early planting against the risk of frost and cold temperatures at flowering...

Nematode-starving linseed ticks all the boxes.. The Jacksons started growing linseed three years ago after attending a GRDC Research Update at Goondiwindi, Queensland, where they learned the crop was resistant to Pratylenchus thornei and P. neglectus , which damage other plants' roots and reduce yield... Before growing linseed, the Jacksons ran a wheat/barley/canola rotation, but PreDicta B tests confirmed there were 17,000 P. thornei per kilogram in their black self-mulching clay soils after the cereal phase...

Soils naturally contain beneficial fungi that help a crop access nutrients like phosphorus and zinc... Many that are associated with crops also form structures called vesicles in the roots and are called vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizae (VAM)... VAM inoculum builds up during cropping but not all crops produce equal quantities of inoculum...
