Research quantifies dry seeding yield benefits

Plain text source: 
Crop simulation modelling has revealed that dry seeding up to half of a 3000 hectare wheat program in a low rainfall area of Western Australia can deliver consistent yield benefits and significant increases in profits over time... CSIRO researcher Michael Robertson will present the results at this month's 2011 Agribusiness Crop Updates, coordinated by the Grains Industry Association of Western Australia (GIWA) on behalf of the WA Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) and the GRDC...
