Stanworth Consultants is conducting a replicated experiment to analyze the potential effects on soil chemistry by the use of applications of large amounts of beet lime on calcareous soils. A replicated experiment is now underway with 4 treatments of different phosphorus fertilizer types including an untreated check. The plots are split with an application of beet lime on one half and none on the other replications.
Crop grown is durum wheat.
Irrigations on the columns are being predicated upon by Echo soil moisture sensor data.
Chemical analysis of plants and soils and yields will be measured at season end. Reports will follow.
