A masterclass to help grain growers and advisers tap into the higher grain production potential of sandy soils. Constrained by their limited capacity to hold moisture and nutrients, many sandy soils in the states’ low- and medium-rainfall zones produce less than half of their yield potential.

With new knowledge generated from a consortium of researchers, growers can access new tools, techniques and know-how to get more out of their sandy soils through six half-day masterclasses. During the masterclasses participants will:

  • Identify soil constraints in a soil pit with a soil specialist.
  • Inspect ripping and other responses in the paddock with agronomists.
  • Discuss machinery selection and set up with engineering experts.
  • Explore decision support tools.
  • Review how soil amelioration might impact farm profit and risk.
