The data were collated by Jonathan Sanderman, CSIRO Agriculture flagship, from a number of sources. No custodian exists for data from this historic trial. New measurements were made on archived soil samples by Jonathan Sanderman (CSIRO). Pasture yield and composition were entered by Andrew Moore (CSIRO) from hard-copy experimental files. Crop yield data were collated by Heather Keith (Waite Agricultural Research Institute). Users are directed to the following publications for further information: Grace, P.R., Oades, J.M., Keith, H., Hancock, T.W. 1995 Trends in wheat yields and soil organic carbon in the Permanent Rotation Trial at the Waite Agricultural Research Institute, South Australia doi:10.1071/EA9950857 Moore, A.D., Grace, P.R. 1998 Effects of annual pasture composition on subsequent wheat yields in the Waite Permanent Rotation Trial, South Australia doi:10.1071/EA97077


The Permanent Rotation Trial at the Waite Campus in Urrbrae, South Australia was established in 1925 under the direction of Prof. Arnold Edwin Victor Richardson, the inaugural Director of the Waite Agricultural Research Institute. The purpose of the trial was to determine the effect of different crop rotations on the yield of wheat. From the time of its establishment until it was terminated, the trial was supported by the Waite Agricultural Research Institute at the University of Adelaide.

About this Project

1179.2 Uncertainty quantification in soi


A long-standing agroecological dichotomy states there is a tradeoff between storing carbon as soil organic matter (SOM) and the nutrient and energy benefit provided during its decomposition. Here we report on results from the Waite Permanent Rotation Trials which demonstrate that management which return more carbon to the soil not only leads to gre... more
