A guide to fertilisers and soil treatments for beef and sheep meat production systems

Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) has supported a number of Producer Demonstration Site projects that were designed to investigate the effects of alternative soil treatments on soil chemistry and biology and pasture and livestock production. These projects, with the addition of another, supported by Binalong Landcare and NSW Department of Primary Industries, formed the basis of Section 1 of this report and were used to provide an across-project assessment of the efficacy and cost effectiveness of alternative soil treatments for improving the biology and productivity of soils, pasture and livestock. Section 2 of this report includes a review of the published evidence on the benefit of alternative soil and pasture treatments for pasture growth and quality. This includes the development of a set of principles for producers to use when making an assessment of particular products.
