Wheat - planting information

Plain text source: 
Chances of optimal yields are improved by establishing at least 700,000 plants/ ha (70 plants/m2) even in seasons of low rainfall... Plant populations below 600,000 plants/ha may result in a reduction in yield and increased weed competition... Common features of deep furrow techniques include narrow tines with high breakout pressures, narrow points to minimise soil disturbance and moisture loss and high pressure narrow press wheels (slot into the seed trench and help stabilise it) which reduce the seed-surface distance and help seed/soil contact...
