Soil testing the key to phosphorus management.. Dr Mike Bell, from the University of Queensland's Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI), says soil testing is important to understanding the status of these key nutrients, of which native stocks in the soils have been run down over time... Some soils have a heck of a lot and still have a lot; others started with not much and now the well is dry, particularly in the sub soils," Dr Bell said...

Dr Bell, who heads up the Soils and Farming Systems research team at UQ's Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI), said many farmers in the north were not getting their nutrient inputs right, and solving the problem could mean rethinking their entire cropping systems... "Legumes offer a solution in that area because they are a way of getting nitrogen into the cropping system to then allow us to divert money being spent on nitrogen for sorghum and wheat, into phosphorus, potassium and sulfur," Dr Bell said...

Sorghum growers weigh up January heatwave risk.. Sorghum growers looking to plant in November are being urged to weigh up the risk of excessively high temperatures occurring in January and coinciding with critical development phases of crops... The research found the most severe impacts on yield occurred when high temperatures around flowering reduced the viability of sorghum pollen causing reduced seed set and yield loss, according to Professor Graeme Hammer, Director of the University of Queensland's Centre for Plant Science at the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI)...
