This workshop and field trip will explore the management of surface and subsurface acidity.

About this event

Hear from leading experts on:

  • the cause and effect of soil acidity
  • soil pH mapping and NDVI
  • lime sources and application rates
  • recent research results from current lime trials across SA, and
  • on-farm decision support models.

The field trip component at Heinrich’s Farm will look at their recent acid soils trial, and review the trial design and results. Presenters will also cover strategies for deep ripping sandy ground, pH mapping and liming and yield penalties from acid soils.

About the project:Acid Soils SA is a collaborative project which provides resources, information and research updates to underpin best practice surface and subsurface soil acidity management in South Australia.

The project will generate new information regarding lime movement and effectiveness when applied to the surface of different soils and environments in modern farming systems. It will also work to identify, develop and validate novel acidity management practices such as lime forms, placement and incorporation methods, such as spading or topsoil slotting.

Registration is required to ensure a COVID safe event.
