It is a simple fact that micronutrients (or trace elements) are only needed by crops and pastures in small amounts, but they play a major part in maximising production... Early identification of what is missing in the paddock is a key part of effective farm management, scientist Dr Nigel Wilhelm says... New research into national micronutrient deficiencies, supported by the GRDC and overseen by Dr Wilhelm's team from the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), has been examining tactics for detecting and managing trace-element deficiencies in crops...

Paddock records help: establish realistic target grain yield/protein levels prior to planting modify target yield/protein levels based on previous crop performance, planting soil moisture, planting time, fallow conditions, expected in-crop seasonal conditions and grain quality requirements determine appropriate fertiliser type, rate and application method compare expected with actual performance per paddock and modify fertiliser strategies to optimise future yield/protein levels... Valuable information obtainable from a soil test includes current nutrient status, acidity or alkalinity (pH), soil salinity (Electrical Conductivity (EC)) and sodicity (Exchangeable Sodium Percentage (E)), which can affect soil structure... Water volumes of 800-1 000 L/ha were commonly applied...

A new soil test for phosphorus is showing considerable potential for use in Australian calcareous soils, with the help of a PhD project supported by growers and the Australian Government through the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC)... The test, diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT), was originally developed for testing metal contamination in the soils and waterways of the United Kingdom, but with some modifications it has been found to correlate well with plant response to applied phosphorus in deficient Australian soils... Photo caption: "Dr Sean Mason prepares to test soil samples for available phosphorus" Dr Mason found that DGT readings were more accurate than other tests in calcareous soil types in laboratory trials...

John Masters uses clay spreading and delving on his property near Wharminda on the Eyre Peninsula... There was no clay at a suitable depth for delving so he spread the paddock at 80 tonnes/ha, followed by incorporation with double railway iron smudge bars, cultivation with wide points and discing with an offset bar... In the sands there's only minimum manganese so if the clay hangs onto it and it's not available to the plant, it can create a huge issue," Linden says...

Subsoil acidity is becoming a real problem on many scrub soils and may be constraining plant growth... Toxicities of aluminium and/or manganese can reduce plant growth in acid soils... The rates of acidification in any soil type can be minimised by replacing the basic nutrients removed in crop produce (e.g. calcium, magnesium and potassium) as part of a fertiliser program, and by minimising the losses of soil nitrate by leaching via appropriate rotations of legume and cereal grain crops...
