Copper Management for the future
The project ‘Copper management for the future’ aims to explore different management strategies to overcome copper deficiency in cereals. The project will compare the effectiveness of copper sulphate and copper chelate applied either as liquids banded at seeding or as a foliar spray. The project will also evaluate the effect of different timings of application of the foliar sprays and their efficiency.
This project will benefit local and South Australian farmers be establishing an independent best practice management guide for copper applications for the future.
The project will improve farm productivity in the following ways:
Trial data and results will be published for each year of the trial.
