Watch nutrient levels following dry year.. The project is aimed at helping growers understand their return on fertiliser investments, for example how many kilograms of grain they are getting for each kilogram of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), sulfur (S) or potassium (K) applied and whether they are mining or managing nutrients... Should a soil test show K levels lower than critical, Dr Norton says growers should implement a plan to replenish K. The most efficient way to do that is to drill muriate of potash (MOP) at seeding or close to seeding rather than top-dressing it...

Growers can give themselves a head start for next season by adhering to some basic practices when it comes to retaining seed from this year's harvest... For growers with varying soil types across their farm, he said the seeds they keep for next year need to come from crops that were grown on more fertile soils... "Seed dressing would mean the retained seed would end up with a richer supply of nutrients for germinating seed, but the late spray is something that growers can get out of the way early and not worry about the following year - the seed is treated and can be stored easily," Dr Wilhelm said...

Phosphorus deficient plants appear as stunted, dark green plants erect leaves and stout stems which often develop orange, red or purplish discolouration... The need for phosphate fertiliser should be determined using soil, plant tissue testing and test strips... Copper sulfate applied to the soil at 10-20 kg/ha prior to or at planting will last a number of years...
