Soil testing the key to fertiliser savings.. According to the Crop Nutrition Fact Sheet published recently by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), results from more than 100,000 recent soil tests in the south-west of WA showed that most growers are operating at or above the soil P levels required... If the tests show that soil P status is sufficient, there may be an opportunity for growers to save money on P fertiliser by cutting back to a maintenance rate...

Subsoil reserves of mineral nutrients such as P have been run down over recent decades, with practices such as direct drill cropping accelerating the loss... The GRDC fact sheet recommends testing subsoil (10 to 30 centimetres) P levels, using both the Colwell-P and BSES-P tests across the farm, as the key to making an informed decision about fertiliser strategy... Soil testing provides an understanding of your fertility profile and is a vital step in making informed fertiliser decisions...

Trials in the northern cropping region have reported positive responses from a single application of phosphorus fertiliser deeper in the soil profile, rather than just near the seed... In the meantime growers should consider soil testing for phosphorus in 10 to 30cm as well as the traditional 0 to 10cm layer... Soil testing for crop nutrition (N) - fact sheet..
