Uneven urea spreading costs $$

The majority of fertilizer spreaders deliver substantial variation in their spread pattern. Some areas of the paddock receive too much fertilizer and others too little. Recent improvements to the Accu-Spread program now allow yield and gross return outcomes from varying nitrogen fertilizer spread patterns to be assessed in wheat and […]

Carbon credits from fertilizer management

Cotton farmers could soon add value to their nitrogen fertilizer management by earning income in a similar process to graziers under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) that recently passed through the Senate. Emissions reduction methods set out the rules for estimating emissions reductions from different activities, and ensure that emissions reductions […]

Grain analysis for nutrient strategy

Analysis of freshly harvested grain can: – show if that crop had a hidden hunger that may have limited yield – document the degree of a known deficiency – confirm its suitability to use as seed – inform future crop nutrition strategy for the paddock. Tissue testing of grain is […]
