Ground Cover Issue 118 - Soil constraints
GroundCover™ Supplement Issue: Ground Cover supplements | 31 Aug 2015
Soil constraints cost Australian growers millions of dollars in lost productivity each year. To reclaim some of this productivity and profit, the GRDC has invested in a national Soil Constraints Initiative, which commenced during 2015.
As part of this national program each GRDC growing region is focusing on soil constraint issues specific to their production systems.
This Ground Cover Supplement details past and present research efforts to develop practical and profitable management solutions for soil constraints holding back yield potential across Australia. Although much of the research to date has been done in Western Australia, which is home to some of the nation’s most problematic soils, the research results are applicable across Australia.
