The goal of this project is to compare two farm management systems within the valley floor (with and without sheep) and their effects on the soil.
This trial will compare two paddocks that have up until now been managed in the same way. The trial is located in a heavy clay valley floor where the paddocks have seen a cropping/grazing (sheep) management system. The property is starting to move towards controlled traffic farming so the landholder wants to investigate the impacts that sheep have on the soil in this system, as well as if there are any other possible constraints happening at depth across these paddocks.
Project outputs will be added once the trial has been completed.
