Do our current wheat varieties need different management to get the best performance from them.

At Yuna, frost in September affected grain yield and quality of the short maturity varieties but not the longer maturing varieties Magenta and Calingiri.

The challenge in low rainfall areas is to understand the influence of management on the genetic difference of varieties.

The mean site yield was 1.4t/ha and there was no difference in yield between Mace and Hydra wheat.

Yield response to applied nitrogen (N) in lower rainfall areas is often relatively low and may also reduce oil.

The Tactical Break Crop Agronomy project has many canola agronomy trials each year.

In general, as long as nitrogen is applied within eight weeks of sowing, there is no yield penalty.

In general, as long as nitrogen is applied within eight weeks of sowing, there is no yield penalty.

Previous experience with canola has found there is no yield penalty if nitrogen is applied within eight weeks of sowing and most farmers aim to apply nitrogen within this timeframe.
