extra stored soil water

Catalogue: GRDC Media
Research funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) shows that early control of fallow weeds can lead to significant increases in the levels of stored plant-available water and increased availability of nutrients (especially nitrogen), benefiting crop yield and grain quality... Mr Cameron, who co-authored the GRDC's Summer Fallow Weed Management manual, said soil water saved by killing fallow weeds was often stored deep in the profile and its value is often far higher than that of in-crop rainfall... In the right soil, deep stored soil water can have a water use efficiency of up to 60 kilograms of grain/millimetre of stored water...

A number of data sets used in this document on water and nitrogen effects of summer fallow weed management have been developed as a part of the GRDC supported Water Use Ef ciency initiative... In the right soil, deep stored soil water can have a water use ef ciency of up to 60 kg of grain/mm of stored water... Early weed control was vital to store and keep valuable subsoil moisture...
