More than 1000 Australian soils have been characterised for plant-available water capacity (PAWC)... The GRDC-funded project 'Measuring and managing soil water in Australian agriculture' is working with groups of consultants and growers across the country to characterise soils for PAWC and discuss how this information can be used to inform management decisions in farm businesses... CSIRO's Canberra-based principal research scientist Dr Kirsten Verburg says when rain did not arrive in spring, growers may have underestimated the volume of water remaining in their soil following a wet start to the winter grains season...

Soil moisture probes like any other component of precision ag can help people confirm decisions or take decision making to another level... Management decisions determining crop type, inputs such as nutrition and disease control are the ones identified where knowledge of deep soil moisture levels may assist with risk management... The objective is to demonstrate the capability of soil moisture monitoring technology with remote communication systems to display soil moisture data from key cropping regions across Victoria and determine how this information can be used by both agronomist and farmers...

Nematodes reduce the amount of water available for plant growth.. Maintaining a low nematode population improves crop yields.. The final yields from three separate experiments highlighted the differences in each cultivar's tolerance to nematodes, with the yields from each cultivar generally corresponding to the cultivars tolerance rating, EGA Wylie (MT) e QT8447 (T-MT) >EGA Gregory (MT) > Kennedy (MI) > Strzelecki (I-VI) ...
