Locating and assessing on-farm lime sources
Host: Tony Crowley | Date: 23 Oct 2019
In Western Australia’s eastern wheatbelt the sand plain soils are prone to acidification.
To neutralise the acidity grain growers apply coastal lime usually sources from sites hundreds of kilometres away from their farms.
However as part of a project initiated by the Kwinana East Regional Cropping Solution Network group research is being done to locate and assess on-farm lime sources as an alternative to coastal lime.
