Soil Wise Elimination Trials Sundowner

Come join us for a sundowner and a paddock walk with Healthy Estuaries WA & Soil Wise team members Rob McFerran and Dr Deborah Holtham from the Department of Water & Environmental Regulation, to review one of eight elimination strip trials sites. The trials ulitmately aim to:

  • Test national critical soil test K and S values for relevance to south-west WA.
  • Promote best practice in sustainable agriculture and increase confidence in farmers and industry in evidence-based fertiliser recommendations.
  • Promote the efficient use of fertiliser products to ensure their potential is maximised on farm and losses to waterways are minimised.

Included in the session will be a demonstration on how to take plant samples for tissue testing.
