Seeing is believing: managing soil variability, improving crop yield and minimising off-site impacts in sugarcane using digital soil mapping
The project will develop a cost effective digital soil mapping framework to provide farmers and advisors with tools to map, manage and monitor the variability in soil properties to improve cane yield and reduce off-site impacts. The research will use DUALEM and gamma-ray spectroscopy to map individual soil properties (e.g. clay, CEC, salinity), and ancillary data such as elevation and crop yield information to identify soil management zones that may be responsive to ameliorants like gypsum application or lime.
