What Does Adequate Soil Fertility Involve?

• Adequate soil fertility is defined as maintaining key soil properties and nutrient levels sufficiently to allow for strong pasture growth.

• Soil fertility can be judged by pasture growth and appearance and by the presence of specific weeds that indicate low soil fertility (e.g. silvergrass, sorrel, Guildford grass).

• Fertility levels can be more objectively assessed by soil testing, where soil samples are carefully taken from paddocks and sent off for laboratory analysis.

• The key soil fertility issues for Hills & Fleurieu pastures are;
- Soil Acidity
- Major Nutrients
- Trace Nutrients

Soil Acidity

• Soil testing measures acidity using the pH scale (acid < 7 < alkaline).

• Most Hills soils are acidic, but this is not a problem if pH levels are kept above 5.5.

• If soils become strongly acidic (pH < 5.5), paddocks should be treated with agricultural lime.
