The aim is to trial whether applying mill mud subsurface has benefits to productivity and also water quality benefits

Usual application of mill mud previously applied as broadcast and now as a zonal application, looking at taking this a step further placing the mud right where the growing plant can take up the nutrients. Often the benefits are not to the crop when the mud is applied but more benefit to the subsequent ratoons.
