Farmers are invited to participate in the Glenelg Hopkins Soil Benchmarking Project.
While individual farmers will have knowledge of soil acidity issues on their farms, the extent to which acidic subsoils are a constraint to farm production across the region is not known.
The Project will see 100 soil monitoring sites established across the catchment to provide a snap shot of soil condition.
Re-testing in 5-yearly intervals will enable catchment-scale trends in soil health to be identified.
This information will guide future farm support packages and contribute to soil science research locally, and nationally.
Data privacy assured. Soil tests are free
Site monitoring site EOI’s close Friday 21 December.
See attached flyers for more information or to make your Expression of Interest in hosting a site.
