Traditionally ANZAC day marked the date on which growers in Western Australia would start dry seeding.
Tertiary students wanting to make their mark on Western Australia’s grains sector are reminded that applications close soon for research and development post-graduate scholarships.
This page summarises the main factors to consider when planning or managing a canola crop.
This page contains information on the optimum sowing windows to maximise grain yield of canola, for 24 locations, three soil types and three canola cultivars, obtained from the APSIM-Canola model a
'Regional Research Agronomy' is the abbreviated working title for the 'Building crop protection and crop production agronomy research and development capacity in regional Western Australia' project
Looking at past years of rainfall does not guarantee that the rainfall trend will continue into the future but it can give us some idea of what might happen.
Lupins should be harvested as soon as they are mature to minimise significant yield loss.
Western Australian grain growers are set to reap the rewards of a significant investment in new soil nutrition research that will boost crop production and reduce fertiliser costs.
Yield was highest from earlier sown plants; mid-May sown plants yielded only 18% of those sown in mid-April.
40% lower germination was measured from seed of plants exposed to wetting and drying at maturity.
