Grains Convo Podcast: Soil testing and increasing productivity from N, P, and K
In this episode of Grains Convo, DPIRD Research Scientist Craig Scanlan and CSBP Research Agronomist James Easton join Cindy Webster to chat about soil testing.
In this episode of Grains Convo, DPIRD Research Scientist Craig Scanlan and CSBP Research Agronomist James Easton join Cindy Webster to chat about soil testing. James details the importance of knowing what the nutrient levels are within the soil profile, as well as the best tips and tricks to attain the best possible soil samples. Craig talks about a project he has been working on to increase profit from N, P, and K fertiliser inputs, with the research giving growers knowledge about what factors have the greatest influence on yield response to fertiliser.
