Diagnosing Sandy Soil Constraints Water Repellence and pH (South-West)

Published: 12 Dec 2022

Measuring constraints on sands to inform management.

Key points

  • Diagnosis of soil constraints is the first critical step in predicting crop response and the economic value of management options
  • Understanding where and how water repellence and acidity or alkalinity constrain crop performance will help you derive the most cost-effective
    management practices
  • Constraint zones within a paddock can be determined relatively easily using readily accessible imagery and production data and field based
    testing processes.
