Impacting Fallow Water Efficiency
At a recent Mungindi Cropping Group Field Day, Rachel & Denielle presented soil moisture data from a trial which commenced at “Bullawarrie’’ in November 2015.
Push probe results in June showed an extra 6-8cm of moist soil under all treatments where stubble had been added to provide additional groundcover.
However, capacitance probe findings, comparing standing stubble to the 40 t/ha added groundcover treatment, provided the most dramatic results. Read more to see what was found.
