incorporation method

Catalogue: GRDC Media
The incorporation of lime appears to be paying off for some farmers through increased production, and research is underway this season to explore the economics of ameliorating subsoils in the eastern central grainbelt of Western Australia... One-year projects to determine economic rates and incorporation methods for lime in this region are being funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and conducted by Tek Ag at Koorda, and Synergy Consulting at Nungarin... "We're assessing the economic returns of each of these combinations, so farmers can start increasing productivity and profitability."..

"We're assessing the economic returns of each of these combinations, so farmers can start increasing productivity and profitability.".. "Our trials will involve varying rates of lime and different methods of incorporation, and take into account effectiveness of amelioration, cost of lime incorporation, yield per treatment, weed stimulus and the end of the day profit/loss per treatment...

Grower groups band together on acidity.. Factors being considered include which lime products to use, freight costs, application rates, whether to incorporate lime, how to best incorporate lime, lime quality (including neutralising value and particle distribution), effects on nutrient availability and subsequent fertiliser costs, labour costs and machinery costs... The Liebe Group is assessing the effectiveness of lime sand, dolomite, liquid lime and granular lime used in combination with different incorporation methods (including mouldboard ploughing, spading, deep ripping, grizzly discs and offset discs)...

"In the trials we assessed whether investment in fertiliser needs to be cut to achieve a profit from lime incorporation and, overall, the answer was no... Dr Scanlan said growers considering reducing fertiliser application and cultivating soils to incorporate lime needed to consider a few factors to assess if it would provide short and long-term economic benefits... "Finally, the cultivation implement needs to be able to mix to the depth where the soil pH constraint occurs to produce an immediate payback on lime and cultivation...

Guidelines developed for lime incorporation.. Researchers have developed initial parameters to guide Western Australian farmers who may be considering cultivating acidic soils to incorporate lime prior to seeding crops in 2014...

Growers need monitoring tools that directly measure soil biology (or provide a reasonable surrogate measure) so they know they are heading in the right direction with their systems and practices... As part of the www.soilquality.org.au monitoring program growers can access regionally specific data on soil biological, chemical and physical constraints to production... The soil quality data on the web site is supported with information fact sheets and calculators which enable 'what if' scenarios to be tested so as to highlight favourable soil quality management decisions...
