Precision soil probes guide amelioration works - By Nicole Baxter.. Gavin Beeck, Gnowangerup, WA, has extensively analysed the structure and fertility of every paddock on his family's farm to address crop production constraints... Gavin first became aware of the value of using precision nutrient application in 1999 when he spent time in the US and observed the degree to which agronomists were prescribing inputs for different areas.

Identify where the benefits of fluid fertilisers are likely to be significant, in terms of climate, soil type and cropping system... The conclusion is that while there does not appear to be any yield advantage associated with using Flexi-N through the boom, as opposed to urea topdressed prior to sowing, there does appear to be an advantage when it is banded... The freight was approximately $40/tonne, compared to solid fertiliser delivered bulk, which is approximately $20/tonne...

Southern Farming Systems chief executive officer Jon Midwood says there is scope for late-season nitrogen application to become more popular, given a soft finish to the season... "Some of the sites we trialled already had adequate nitrogen because of high residual levels, or the grower had applied more nitrogen prior to GS32," Mr Midwood says... "Also spreading widths are getting wider and there may be a case for considering liquid fertilisers because they can be applied through a boom-spray at the correct width, compared to a spinning disc spreader which can be limited by wind conditions and machine set-up," Mr Midwood says...

Aware that time could be of the essence as growers strive to maximise their plantings with the first rain, the three companies - Nufarm, Incitec Pivot and CSBP - have co-developed a single-pass system for weed and insect control and for delivering liquid nitrogen... The product, called 'The One and Only - One Pass Cropping System', combines Nufarm's crop-protection expertise with the fertiliser and crop nutrition specialisation at Incitec Pivot and CSBP. Nufarm's managing director Doug Rathbone says all three collaborators see the system as a major breakthrough: "We see it as a step-change in agriculture in Australia... The system allows growers to control weeds, fertilise and potentially sow a crop in one pass, saving time, fuel, water and labour...

The trial consisted of a comparison between 2 wheat and 2 barley varieties, grown either at 15 or 30 cm row spacing's with 4 rates of either granular MAP or liquid P fertiliser - in this case ammoniated phosphoric acid (Easy NP )... Trials were sown to Crusader wheat, at 30 and 40 cm row spacing with 6 rates of P as granular MAP or ammoniated phosphoric acid (Easy NP )... Liquid vs. granular fertilisers Trials conducted by NSW DPI and Incitec-Pivot Ltd in 2004 under high yield potential on the Liverpool Plains compared wheat responses between liquid starter fertilisers (Easy NP and DAP-H2SO4) and granular products (DAP and MAP)...

Thanks must go to everyone who has submitted papers and presented at the 2004 Agribusiness Crop Updates... There was little graminaceous plant material available on which aphids could survive, so none were recorded in the wheat blocks at either site until the end of August, by which time most plants had reached GS 41-47 (booting)...
