Project Aim:

This trial is one of two that have been set up to examine a range of management options for non-wetting soils, including banded wetters, claying and soil inversion techniques.  This site is established on a forest gravel soil.  The trial is a replicated randomised block design with 3 replicates of each treatment.  The aim is to determine the most effective approach of addressing non-wetting soils to enhance crop growth, carbon sequestration and reduce run-off.  In subsequent years, paddock scale strip trials will demonstrate the most effective treatments from the small scale trial to landholders.
