cultivation

Catalogue: GRDC Publications
The benefits improve crop health and crop competitive ability against weeds and the effectiveness of pre-emergent herbicides... When used as a post-emergent product, little of the herbicide gets to the roots and the control of established weeds is often very poor... benefits arise when the weed is prevented from setting seed as there are no increases to the seedbank and, as a consequence, fewer weeds in the future...

DAFWA’s Craig Scanlan explains the benefits of lime incorporation with cultivation during 2013 field days.. Craig says it is most likely that incorporating lime with cultivation did not lift yields above those achieved with cultivation alone in this first year of the trial because only a small proportion of soil was ameliorated by the one-way plough... Craig says the cultivation response at the Dalwallinu site was driven by the removal of a soil physical constraint (acidity).He says the economic success of incorporating lime with cultivation depends on the implement being able to mix to the depth where the soil constraint occurred...

Cultivation to incorporate lime can be more economic than topdressing where: Ca in the 0-10cm layer is well below the recommended 5.5 Ca in the 10-20cm layer is well below the recommended 4.8.. Researchers are starting to devise economic and productivity parameters around cultivating to incorporate lime on acidic soils, rather than topdressing lime... Craig says it is most likely that incorporating lime with cultivation did not lift yields above those achieved with cultivation alone in this first year of the trial because only a small proportion of soil was ameliorated by the one-way plough...
