AIR EP

AIR EP is responsive and relevant to our farmer and industry members, ensuring that farmers, agribusiness and the scientific community are an integral part of the planning and delivery of independent RD&E across the Eyre Peninsula, SA.

  • We exist to: deliver quality applied research for the benefit of farmers on the Eyre Peninsula
  • We exist to: build capacity of the agricultural sector through education, training and extension

Featured Project

Resilient EP

For a profitable farming future

The EP soil moisture probe network and other technologies will be used to assist farmers make efficient use of limited soil water. A Regional Innovators group of farmers and advisers will engage researchers and link with the region’s farmers to develop techniques to integrate information generated from the probe network as well as satellite imagery, climate and yield models, in a user friendly format to help make more profitable decisions.

Yield Prophet reports predict yield gaps in some EP environments in 2022

Across the Eyre Peninsula good rains have been received resulting in high yield potential. There is an array of predicted yield gaps (nitrogen limited) from none to several tonnes. Upper EP has some high yield potential paddocks with a relatively low yield gap. Lower EP for the most part has a relatively large yield gap as would be expected. This is relative to crop rotation, soil type and yield potential. Knowledge of stored soil moisture, soil type and starting N all contribute to the knowledge of the yield gap and therefore what is required on an agronomic basis to aim for the most beneficial yield potential on farm. Elements such as heat and frost must also be considered when making such decisions.
