19-20th March (Wakool & Deniliquin, NSW) Knowing Your Soils The secret to maximising crop and pasture yields lies within your soils. Soil type determines water holding capacity, crop establishment, drainage and compaction. Soil characteristics impact crop type, nutrient availability and overall plant health. Considering this, are we limited by our soils? Or can we use them to our advantage? Brush up on your existing soil knowledge with a soil pit demonstration from Sue Briggs and John Fowler of Murray Local Land Services and expand your understanding of soil biology and how it relates to your crops with the latest research presented by Professor Pauline Mele of DEDJTR. This event is free of charge with morning or afternoon tea provided. Don't miss out, RSVP here!
