In 2014 the Corangamite CMA undertook its first regional soil monitoring program to gain an understanding of the in soil issues and variability across the region.

These results when combined with testing from local trials, provides a basis to monitor changes in regional soil condition over time. Lisa Miller from Southern Farming Systems shares her insights on three areas of acidity in the latest edition of the Corangamite FARM TALK magazine (page 23).

The soil test results for different areas are located on the Corangamite Soil Health Knowledge Base with a general soil description map.
