This project brings together a consortium of project partners to address soil acidification and build more resilient farm businesses. It improves the precision (timing, rate, locations) of where lime is applied in cropping and grazing systems and develops cost effective ways of rectifying subsoil acidity. The project unlocks value by actively involving all parties in the lime supply chain (farmers, advisors, industry associations, suppliers). The resilient farm business component strengthens farm decisions by combining the highly successful Grain and Graze decision procedures with four disparate pieces of vital real-time information – soil, water, pasture availability, commodity prices and climate data. Value is unlocked by bringing the data together in a dashboard with push notification and building skills and confidence in farms.
