Growers address acid soil constraints such that soil pH is maintained above critical levels and root growth, uptake of water and nutrients, grain yield and profitability are maximised.
Understanding of the need to act and quantification of the benefits of action
Understanding of the causes and potential impacts on crop production of soil acidity is increased.
Soil and crop management options to address acid soil constraints
Crop yields and profitability are increased by minimising acidification, treating acid soils with effective amendments, and improving plant tolerance of soil acidity.
Adoption of practices to address acid soil constraints
The adoption of improved soil amendments, tolerant crop species and varieties and/or agronomic practices to address soil acidity is increased.
