On-farm trials in Western Australia's South Coast region have highlighted the importance of growers testing deep tillage treatments on small areas before deciding whether to apply them to larger areas... Trials were undertaken at three sites using various types of rippers and configurations for depth and spacing, including machinery depths to 20cm, 30cm and 40cm and tyne spacings of 30cm and 60cm... "The results reinforce the importance of doing small plot trials before applying invasive treatments across paddocks, as well as knowing the characteristics of the subsoil and using an experienced machinery operator - to minimise the risks of negative impacts such as bringing too much clay or rock to the surface," she said...
