'SCAMP' and SafeGauge for Nutrients': Two new decision support tools for minimising off-site movement of nutrients.
The Six Easy Steps approach to nutrient management in the sugar industry makes soil-specific nutrient recommendations and identifies appropriate management strategies by taking account of differences in key properties of ...
Concepts and value of the nitrogen guidelines contained in the Australian sugar industry's 'SIX EASY STEPS'nutrient management program.
The paper summarises the alternative N management strategies that occur within the Australian sugar industry. It describes best-practice nutrient management and the concepts that underpin the SIX EASY STEPS program, and ...
Nutrient dynamics and root health in sugarcane soils
Research conducted by the Yield Decline Joint Venture has shown that productivity of the current sugarcane farming system can be increased significantly by soil fumigation or breaking the current monoculture. Associated ...
'SCAMP' and 'SAFEGAUGE FOR NUTRIENTS': two new decision support tools for minimising off-site movement of nutrients
Minimising the off-site movement of nutrients from sugarcane blocks is a priority management issue both from a productivity and an environmental viewpoint. The Six Easy Steps approach to nutrient management in the sugar ...
Impact of management of cane trash and legume residues on N mineralisation and crop N uptake
Inappropriate management of the fallow legume residues has been shown to result in rapid N mineralisation and potentially large N losses due to leaching. This study examined the impact of tillage system and management of ...
Nitrous oxide emissions from sugarcane soils: effects of urea forms and application rate
The combination of high nitrogen (N) fertiliser application rates and cane residue retention with the wet and warm climate in the Australian sugarcane regions provides favourable conditions for the production of nitrous ...
The “SIX EASY STEPS” as a delivery mechanism for best practice nutrient management in the Australian sugar industry
Best-practice nutrient management is aimed at minimising the risk of losses in productivity (loss of yield), profitability (loss of income), nutrients (leaching, run-off and/or gaseous losses) and soil resources (erosion ...
Recognising differences in soil type to guide nutrient inputs on-farm – a case study from Bundaberg
THE Six Easy Steps program is aimed at the adoption of sustainable nutrient management on-farm.
A comparison of different approaches for deriving nitrogen application rates using trial data from Macknade
Although Nitrogen (N) is the most commonly applied nutrient to sugarcane, application rates continue to cause controversy.
Amendments of sugarcane trash induce suppressiveness to plant parasitic nematodes in a sugarcane soil
In a field experiment at Bundaberg, Queensland, sugarcane trash was incorporated into soil with, or without, additional nitrogen supplied as either soybean residue or ammonium nitrate. The carbon inputs from plant material ...
