Improving Yields with VRT and Managing Technology Hurdles

The discussion revolves around the outcomes and experiences from Variable Rate Technology (VRT) workshops and field implementations in the Mallee region.

Tanja Morgan interviews experts Sean Mason and Peter Treloar, focusing on the successes in phosphorus management through VRT, the variability of rainfall effects on harvests, and the economic benefits observed across different soil types and yield scenarios.

Additionally, the conversation highlights the ongoing technological challenges farmers face, such as integrating GPS with farm equipment, and the importance of problem-solving to overcome these barriers.

The dialogue also touches on future focuses, such as mapping for acidity management and the significance of test strips for verifying farming strategies. The project is part of the efforts funded by the SA Drought Hub aimed at enhancing soil zone mapping for variable rate nutrition management, with an invitation for more participation.
