All varieties responded similarly to plant density.

Grain yield peaked at a less than 20 plants/m2 and increases in plant density above 20 plants/m2 produced either similar yields and gross margins or reduced yield and gross margins.


This trial (13CH22) is one of a series conducted throughout WA as part of the GRDC and DPIRD co-funded project; Tactical break crop agronomy.

Thanks to the DPIRD Geraldton Research Facility for trial management and Jo Walker (DPIRD Geraldton) for kindly providing technical assistance to ensure all treatments and measurements occurred in a timely and accurate fashion.
