Unearthing the secrets of soil management| Posted Jun 02,2023
Dr Chloe Lai of the University of Southern Queensland is leading a new Soil CRC project investigating the best ways to manage multiple soil constraints, such as sodicity, acidity, and salinity, which are known to limit a soil’s yield.
The University of Southern Queensland shared her story:
“Our hope is to develop a tool that can predict the best management strategies for soils affected by multiple constraints under specific weather and farming conditions,” Dr Lai said.
“Ultimately, we want to provide practical and easy-to-use solutions to identify, prioritise, and manage soil constraints that are backed by robust science.”
