CSBP, GRDC & DPIRD

Objective: To determine the responsiveness of wheat to phosphorus (P) fertiliser and the effectiveness of Agras compared to MAP.

Background: This trial is part of a GRDC project aimed at increasing profit from nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) fertiliser inputs. Cropping systems have evolved a lot over the last 20 years with the adoption of no-till, earlier seeding and rainfall has declined. In this project, there are 40 one-year P response trials being conducted on wheat over 4 years to determine whether P fertiliser requirements have changed. These trials will also be used to evaluate different soil sampling methods and alternative laboratory tests.
