Autumn fertiliserAutumn fertiliser

Autumn is the season where maintenance and capital fertiliser application can help set your paddocks up to meet your pasture and winter feed demands. Fertiliser can be one of the biggest investments on-farm, so it is important that soil testing is conducted to inform your fertiliser purchasing decisions.


Here are some tips to consider: 

» Consider a soil test to take the guess work out of nutrient management and to guide cost-effective fertiliser decisions.

» Aim to take 15 to 20 cores of soil over a representative sample area. To reduce result variation, tests should be taken over the same transect line.

» Pasture tests should be taken at 75 mm and crop soil tests should be taken at 150 mm. Avoid areas such as gateways, fence lines and dung and urine patches. Ensure that your samples arrive at the laboratory overnight.
