What’s this all about?

PAA has been working with the Grains Research and Development Corporation‘s Regional Cropping Solutions Network and growers groups over the last three years to develop a network of soil moisture probes across the WA wheatbelt. This project also involves running Yield Prophet for each site. Yield Prophet reports for the 2015 growing season are currently being developed and will be uploaded by the 19th of June.

Soil moisture charts and latest Yield Prophet reports can be downloaded from this site once available.

Metadata for each site (i.e. soil profile characteristics and probe locations) will be made available on this site in July 2015.

Two new sites at Munglinup and East Beverley have been added in 2015 as part of the Action on the Ground (AoTG) project. These sites consist of moisture probes and Yield Prophet running in two locations within each paddock, each with very different soil types and yield potential. We are measuring nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from these sites and investigating the potential to reduce N2O emissions by matching nitrogen inputs to yield potential. More details from the first year of the trial will be added soon.
