What is Colere working on this week?
Management of sub-soil constraints is now a major focus for many grain producers. Gone are the days of “just buy out the neighbour”, the value of land is driving many to consider a range of minor amendments through to major amelioration works.
Our project with University of South Australia is investigating, consulting and strategising on what the next generation of ag-engineering concepts will potentially deliver. Dr Jack Desbiolles and Dr Chris Saunders are well known to our industry, and we welcome onboard Dr Kojo Aikins, as the team explores the current options (and envisage the future) of clay delving, placing organic matter at depth and sowing into variable moisture conditions.
Workshops were conducted in June for Esperance, Northam, Kimba, and Horsham.
