Soil Pit Day & Nitrogen Workshop – Boorhaman

Soil Pit Day and Nitrogen Workshop on Thursday 23 February at Boorhaman

Riverine Plains Inc and Boorhaman Landcare are hosting a soil pit and workshop morning as part of the Soil Moisture Probe Project with the North East CMA.

The day will commence at 9am with a visit to a soil Pit at Adam & Jane McInnes property, Robinsons Road (Between Jones Swamp Road & W Boundary Road, Boorhaman). We will look at the soil pit and use this as a backdrop to discuss the soil moisture results from the probes, the impact of soil type on water movement, and where the N went last season.

At 10:30, we will head to the Boorhaman Hall for a discussion about the effects of last season and also how this might affect nitrogen strategies for this season. We will also be discussing yield prophet before finishing for lunch at around 12:30 at the Boorhaman Pub.

Please RSVP for catering purposes, either by email to or phone 03 5744 1713.  This day is open for all, so feel free to forward on to others.
