Hot off the press are the results from 2019 uPtake trials!
Results from 19 trials to date, including 3 trial sites in the Geographe Bay Catchment, are showing the national critical values for phosphorus (P) used to inform fertiliser recommendations are relevant for South West WA.
The 2019 results summary is now available.
UpTake will run to 2022 and aims to undertake 36 P trials across the South West. Results from the next two years of trials will be added to the 2019 trial data to build a robust validation of national data and enhanced understanding of P responses in South West soils with contemporary pasture species.
