Research Site / Demonstration Number: SA03WB-05

Grower Collaborator: Amaryllys Farming

Location 5: Goomburrum Road, Goomburrum

Initiation Date: March 2019


OUTLINE: To introduce, develop and evaluate precision farming practices into pineapple production systems targeting improved fertiliser and pesticide efficiency and reducing off farm deposition. 


OBJECTIVES:

  1. To improve the methodology for better application of foliar fertilisers and pesticide with a focus on early growth stages.
  2. To minimise fertiliser and pesticide input in early crop growth.
  3. To measure fertiliser and pesticide wastage and off farm losses comparing precision application against traditional application practices.
  4. To compare cost effectiveness of precision application of foliar fertiliser compared with traditional foliar fertiliser practices.
