The GRDC is examining the potential for new R&D investments involving tractor- and implement-mounted soil probes, or totally new approaches that don't suffer from the time lags and delays of current laboratorybased procedures... These might, for example, enable growers to measure the soil nitrogen available at the time of sowing and to adjust starter N rates ... While there are risks involved in such research, the potential pay-offs are highespecially with many growers moving to precision agriculture farming methods, which allow them to target fertiliser or other treatments directly to high- and low-producing areas in paddocks...
