To improve cane yield and soil health focusing on pH levels and aluminium saturation

The trial is focusing on Agricultural lime products and which one is most beneficial to yield, sugar and economics.
We will look at a pH timeline of when and how much the lime products shift pH levels and which one is more economic over a crop cycle. There is concern that fine lime products like Calipril will tie up phosphorous when put within the fertiliser band, so this too is being investigated.
