GRDC Podcast: Factors driving nitrogen decisions for WA growers
GRDC caught up with Liz Petersen to discuss the results from a survey of over four hundred West Australian grain producers.
Deborah Bishop interviews Dr. Elizabeth Petersen from the University of Western Australia about the results from a survey of four hundred West Australian grain producers. They discuss the role of agronomics, the process involved with making fertiliser decisions and strategies implemented to maximise yield potential. This survey and podcast is part of a GRDC project ‘Increasing profit from N, P and K fertiliser inputs into the evolving cropping sequences in the Western Region (UMU1801-006RTX)’ and is supported through the SoilsWest alliance by DPIRD, Murdoch University, University of Western Australia, Curtin University, University of Adelaide, CSBP, and Summit Fertilisers.
