An overview of the Producer Demonstration Site:
• Soil tests have been completed on four paddocks in the Jandowae Uplands area.
• Using these soil tests, landholders are strategically applying fertiliser to existing sown pastures over three years to improve paddock productivity.
• Pasture and animal performance data is being measured on trial and control paddocks.
• Data is being used to determine if fertilising sown pastures is an economically worthwhile practice.
