The major constraints for agricultural productivity associated with alkaline and particularly calcareous soils under the dryland climate of southern Australia, include low availability of P and micronutrient deficiencies. For 50 years granular fertilizers were applied to cope with these problems, but the responses of wheat to increasing rates of granular fertilizers were very low and not economically viable.
