Given the importance of soil evaporation in influencing how much water will be stored during a fallow and its potential to vary with climate, soils and land management practices, it is timely (within the scope of this project) to assess the way in which we are accounting for these losses in our models.. The large difference in the number of simulations run for each model can be attributed to the physical nature of SWIM. SWIM requires a hydraulic gradient in order to move water between layers, so for soils that are at or above DUL this gradient is very low and SWIM can have difficulty finding a solution... Overall, both models are acceptable for modelling soil evaporation over a range of soils and seasons provided accurate soil physical properties and starting water states are known...

Pursuing the mystery of disease-suppressive soils.. The GRDC is funding a suite of projects to identify and harness the biological traits associated with suppressive soils.. Mechanisms of disease suppression are identified using RNA sequencing technology to examine the genes that are switched on in suppressive and non-suppressive soils prior to sowing and six to eight weeks after sowing, when young plants can be infected by R. solani ...

The GRDC is funding a suite of projects to identify and harness the biological traits associated with suppressive soils.. The project is looking to identify the key organisms involved in the suppression of root lesion nematodes and which soils might best support these organisms...
