Lessons from the Soil Pit
Congupna, 10am -12pm
Knowing your soils is vital to better understand constraints and how to improve them. Join us in the soil pit to discuss an area that suffers from poor water infiltration. The pit will identify the soil constraints and assess root development and depth. Ross will share how his management has been aimed at rectifying the issues including irrigation scheduling to aid infiltration.
