Frustrated by poor yields on water-repellent sands, Binnu grain grower Damian Harris turned to spading as a means of improving crop establishment and productivity
Subsoil phosphorus deficiencies identified in long-term research across the northern grain-growing region have spurred a new approach to fertiliser application for the Black family at Brookstead in south-east Queensland.
Nitrogen application can be problematic for growers because of the variables that influence its application and amount. On this program we go through some rules of thumb on nitrogen use both at the beginning and the end of the season.
Blackleg can cause severe yield loss, but can be successfully managed. Use this guide to determine whether you are in a high-risk situation and what practices you can change to reduce or prevent yield loss from blackleg.
