Grower groups band together on acidity.. Factors being considered include which lime products to use, freight costs, application rates, whether to incorporate lime, how to best incorporate lime, lime quality (including neutralising value and particle distribution), effects on nutrient availability and subsequent fertiliser costs, labour costs and machinery costs... The Liebe Group is assessing the effectiveness of lime sand, dolomite, liquid lime and granular lime used in combination with different incorporation methods (including mouldboard ploughing, spading, deep ripping, grizzly discs and offset discs)...

Soils should be tested every 3-5 years as part of a nutrient-monitoring programme... Applying phosphate fertiliser can induce zinc deficiency either by interference with zinc uptake or by relative dilution of zinc concentration in the plant by the large increase in production caused by phosphate application... Zinc is a vital element to the plant and should not be overlooked in a balanced crop nutrition program...

Overall, the higher P rate also led to increased dry matter at the plant cut stage (mid-late tillering) and at the 3 times of NDVI measurement... Overall, mustard and juncea canola have many advantages over canola, and would be better suited than canola to the drier western parts of northern NSW...
