Testing confirms more efficient fertiliser use lifts gross margins

0
This article discusses how accounting for the variation in crop yield potential due to season and soil type when formulating fertiliser rates can increase profit and reduce nutrient excesses.

It shows that improved estimates of yield potential can increase gross margins by A$2–$20/ha over ‘farming-for-the-average’, with higher increases on soils with lower plant-available water capacity at drier locations.

The article also discusses that fact that the gains to be made by accounting for soil type differences are similar to those that can be made by accounting for seasonal differences and that equal emphasis should be given to both factors when estimating crop yield potential.
