By using the right amount of fertiliser at sowing and monitoring crop requirements throughout the season, growers can ensure nutrient-rich water doesn't escape into nearby rivers and simultaneously improve crop profitability," Dr Nash says... Better defining the relationships between inorganic soil nitrogen, fertiliser application rates and yield for different seasonal conditions is important. ".. Researchers found: Dr Nash says that minimising nitrogen applications at sowing also reduces non-redeemable costs and defers some expenditure decisions until later in the season when other factors affecting crop performance, such as moisture limitations or waterlogging, are evident.

Helping grain growers make the most of fertiliser applications and preventing potential environmental degradation from nutrient runoff are the twin aims of a three-year project to begin in July this year... Dr Peverill says the grains-based project is in the process of securing participation from state government departments, CSIRO, and the fertiliser and grains industries to establish a national database and collectively develop soil nutrient levels for various crops and regions... Dr Peverill was involved in the development of the pasture-based fertiliser decision framework, which now underpins recommendations from agronomists and fertiliser companies about soil nutrient levels required to optimise pasture performance...

Research aids decisions on fertiliser application.. Conversely calcium carbonate content did not affect losses from urea or other nitrogen fertilisers trialled so growers with high calcium carbonate content soils will incur less risk by tailoring their fertiliser type ... As a high input cost, fertiliser selection and application need to be managed well if growers are to maximise crop returns and this type of research is a valuable step forward in enabling industry to achieve that goal...

Moisture retention and VRT paying off for Egans.. To improve their profitability and productivity, Scaddan growers Gavin and Elaine Egan pay keen attention to summer weed control and in recent seasons have introduced variable-rate technology (VRT) for application of inputs... In 2012, the Egans returned to a blanket rate in their fertiliser applications after a hailstorm at the end of 2011 wiped out most of their cereals, leaving little harvest data for the yield mapping on which VRT applications are based...

Pittsworth grower Peter Bach has implemented a new approach to nutrient management this season that aims to reduce labour costs and improve machinery efficiency on his family's 1214-hectare property in south-east Queensland... Instead of applying fertiliser on fallow country before sowing summer crops, Peter has opted to delay this operation, and instead plans to increase his fertiliser rates at the time of sowing 566ha of sorghum and 242ha of maize... While Peter is now applying a total of 330kg/ha of fertiliser at planting, he hopes that placing the fertiliser rows 38 centimetres from the plant rows will reduce the potential for fertiliser toxicity resulting from the higher fertiliser rate...
