The tool enables a rapid interpretation of test results and field observations from a given paddock. You can use it to compare the intensity of constraints and its impact on yield. Once you know which constraints can affect your wheat yield the most, you can consider your options and take profitable decisions. About 40 factors affecting wheat yield in WA have been included and these comprise nutrition, soil toxicity, soil physical, crop management, disease and weed levels.
How to use
Step 1: Select the tab of your interest and where field observations or laboratory data are available.
Step 2: Move sliders and pick options as requested.
Step 3: Read the gauge colour. The colour of the gauge will change according the input data.
|Potential yield loss||Interpretation||Gauge reading|
|Less than 5%||Not a constraint||Green|
|5-15%||Watch it - you are at risk||Yellow|
|15-25%||Fix it - you are already at high risk of loss||Orange|
|More than 25%||Stop and think on how to address this constraint||Red|
