Accelerating adoption of integrated soil management practices in irrigated cotton and grain

Product Information

Most cotton farms are situated on riparian flood plains and best management practice (BMP) of soils is imperative to the sustainability of these landscapes.

One of the best ways to improve water management and to optimise nutrition inputs to reduce the impact of rising fertiliser costs to improve soil health and management.

A 2005 study of Australia’s cotton industry examined farmers’ current knowledge and understanding of soil health. It also studied management issues in order to identify the cotton industry’s soil health needs. It found that farmers’ understanding of what constituted soil health varied and that they wanted to receive more extension information about soil health issues.
