Abstract

Take home message
• In Qld, it appears a yield gap does exist for cereal grains with substantial positive yield increases
generally from combinations of tillage and subsurface nutrient placements
• In the early phases of the experiment, there has been no yield difference between organic and inorganic nutrient application but the input rates are very high. These might diverge in future as Nitrogen supply from the organic treatment might provide a longer release pattern
• With generally high levels of growing season rainfall in crops grown since soil ameliorants were applied, there has not yet been the opportunity for the soil water benefits expected from amelioration of soil sodicity with gypsum to be fully expressed as yield increases.
