UNFS Deep Ripping Demonstration
Join us on Friday the 29th April from 1PM to see the implementation of our deep ripping trial out from Melrose.
This trial is investigating if ripping in combination with the application of amendments can:
- Improve plant rooting depth via opening a compaction layer at ~20 cm’s
- Leach salts beyond the plant root zone (sodium and chloride)
- Correct pH stratification (acid throttle)
We will be using an Agrowplow AP91 from WSB Distributers Jamestown and lime / gypsum from Penrice Quarries.
This is a “Tools, Tech and Transformation” Hub Event with the site being managed as part of the “Building Soil Knowledge and Capacity” project. Full details of these projects on our website.
LOCATION: 678 McCallum road Melrose, google pin below:
*This is the site where we had a soil pit for the 2021 UNFS expo.
