SOILpak

SOILpak is a best practice soil management manual for the Australian cotton industry.

Grey and brown cracking clays (sometimes referred to as Vertisols or Vertosols) are the most common of the soil types used by Australian cotton growers, so they receive the most attention in this manual. However, other soil types such as hardsetting red soil are important in some districts.

SOILpak concentrates on the skills needed to assess the condition of a soil, with emphasis on soil structure, and understand the management options for maintaining or improving soil condition.
