Variable-rate technology has enabled Kym l'Anson to both even out and lift wheat yields across a mix of soil types.. Using a blanket rate of gypsum would have wasted over 1000 tonnes of gypsum and lime," Kym says... "We need to keep monitoring the soil to assess whether we have raised the pH sufficiently or if it is acidifying under our continuous cropping program," says Kym...

Subsurface acidity is a major constraint to crop and pasture productivity across Western Australia's grainbelt and is estimated to erode potential crop yields by 9 to 12 per cent, worth $500 million annually... About 14.25 million hectares of WA grainbelt soils are acidic or at risk of becoming acidic to the point of restricting crop yields, and lime use has increased in recent years to address acidic soils with low pH levels...

Researchers including DAFWA's Chris Gazey estimate that 2.5 million tonnes per year of lime is needed for the next decade to recover soil pH to the targets of 5.5 in the surface and 4.8 in the subsurface layers and address ongoing soil acidification... The investment in lime needs to be considered over a number of years... The practices can cause big yield responses to occur quickly, but to maximise the benefit the lime incorporation technique needs to distribute lime well through the subsurface layers...
