Improving the efficiency of nitrogen fertilisation of sugarcane under minimum till and trash conservation cultural conditions (Final report SRDC Project BS37S)
Objectives of the experiments were (1) Determine the extent of NH3 volatilisation when urea and ammonium sulfate are applied to the surface of a trash blanket in four cane-growing regions. Evaluate the effect of various ...
Risk assessment of phosphorus (P) loss and guidelines for P use in lower Herbert soils Final report on SRDC Project No CLW010
In project CSS3S (Bramley et aI., 1998), a field and laboratory-based survey of the behaviour of phosphorus (P) was carried out on the soils of the lower Herbert River catchment, and sediments derived from them. The aim ...
Improving the management of acid and sodic soils with green trash retention using calcium-based ameliorants/products : SRDC final project report BSS199
Although the advantages of leaving cane residues on the harvested land have been well documented, and nutrient cycling in relation to green-cane trash blanketing has been well examined within a Cooperative Research Centre ...
Environmentally sound phosphorus management for sugarcane soils : final report on SRDC Project no CSS3S
A field and laboratory-based survey of the behaviour of phosphorus (P) was carried out on the soils of the lower Herbert River catchment, and sediments derived from them. The aim was to explore the factors governing P ...
A reference booklet for canegrowers on the nutrition and fertilizing of sugarcane for different soil types
A wide range of different soils are used for sugarcane production in the Herbert River district. An understanding of these differences both at district and farm levels will ensure that nutrient management reflects this ...
Final report SRDC Project CSR024 Improving the environment for sugarcane growth through the amelioration of soil acidity
Most soils used for growing sugarcane in wet tropical northern Queensland are highly acidic. Comparisons between new cane land and land that has been growing sugarcane for many years have demonstrated that our soils have ...
