Abstract

The Soils Team of the Productivity, Irrigation, Pests and Soils project (PIPS) has collected baseline data on soil carbon across Australian orchards. This is the first step toward understanding how orchard management could be used to change soil carbon and soil health knowledge that growers could use to optimise nutrient availability and orchard performance. - See more at: http://apal.org.au/soil-carbon-soil-health-apple-orchards/#sthash.SWljjNoK.dpuf
