deep banding phosphorus

Catalogue: Ground Cover
Grower group road-tests subsoil phosphorus nutrition.. The conventional practice of applying 8.7kg/ha of phosphorus in 40kg/ha of starter fertiliser with the seed, about 5cm into the soil, provided a 47 per cent yield increase - almost half the yield benefit of deep phosphorus applications... Preliminary data from the 2014 trials also suggests that subsoil applications of phosphorus at higher rates may provide almost twice the yield benefit of phosphorus applied at low rates near the surface as starter fertiliser...

For southern Queensland grower John 'Cowboy' Cameron the need to minimise the initial, high cost of applying phosphorus deep in the soil has led him to adjust a planter he built in the farm workshop for deep-banding fertiliser... The homemade implement allows John to switch from seeding to deep fertiliser applications in just 10 minutes on his 1400-hectare property at Bongeen, about 50 kilometres west of Toowoomba... John says data from the first year of trials has highlighted a significant yield response to subsoil phosphorus applications in tough seasonal conditions...
