" Harnessing the Biological Potential of Australian Cropping Soils.. Titled 'Harnessing the biological potential of Australia's cropping soils', the Soil Biology initiative II (SBI-II; 2009-2014) is investing in research, development and extension (RDE) themes that build on the knowledge generated from a previous soil biology program (2002-2006) and from priorities identified at a GRDC workshop (Next Generation Soil Biology RDE)... An ongoing output will be the coordination of review workshops and reporting processes to ensure that adequate resourcing, integration and consistency measures are being applied across all projects and new opportunities are identified...

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...
