The lasergrading amelioration trial at the MDF contrasts standard practice with other non conventional treatments to determine whether the effects of lasergrading can be ameliorated more completely or quickly than conventional practices.
The treatments are:
1. Standard Practice (ryegrass, lime, gypsum, standard fert)
2. Split application of lime and gypsum
3. Lime and gypsum incorporated at sowing
4. Compost application
5. Multispecies cover crop
All treatments will be monitored for dry matter production and quality, and assessed for effects on key soil health parameters.
