Annual trial results and personal profiles of the innovative leaders in the Queensland sugar industry, backed up by the technical data of previous case studies.
Mixing it up to reduce erosion.
To use low cost sensors on haul-out vehicles to produce cane yield maps to further improve the availability and accuracy of VR maps to growers.
Assess the benefit of adding Serenade product to the soil by different methods .
To lower the amount of imidacloprid applied per hectare by using variable rate technology, whilst maintaining adequate grub control.
To better match irrigation to crop and soil water needs, reduce water wastage and to maximise yield potential.
To investigate the effect of harvester speed on subsequent cane yields and nitrogen use efficiency.
The aim of telemetry is to use sensors to detect changes in soil moisture and in turn automatically inform the grower when adequate soil moisture is achieved or when irrigation must be applied.
Staggered nitrogen rate application to mitigate crop lodging and CCS reduction on high yield potential soils.
To compare irrigation methods and their impact on plant nutrient uptake and water quality.
