RCSN Trial: Wodjil Workout-rise of the pH
Trial Summary: Wodjil soils in the Eastern Central Wheatbelt of Western Australia have two main issues that constrain production; low pH and high Aluminium concentration. The Kwinana East port zone Regional Cropping Solutions Network through the GRDC have contracted TekAgs’ Ty Henning to assess the effect of lime rate and incorporation methods over time on sub-soil pH and yield on the highly acidic and aluminium toxic soil commonly known as Wodjil. We hope you enjoy this drones-eye view of the trial site which is located near Cadoux.
