Trials of mouldboard ploughing to alleviate non-wetting soils near Corrigin have produced impressive initial results including high crop yields and low weed numbers in what was a poor performing paddock... The CFIG research is also investigating other options for non-wetting soils including wetting agents, winged points and in-row seeding (as opposed to inter-row seeding) and is one of five RCS non-wetting soils projects in the western part of the Kwinana port zone... Mr Wallwork said the trial results reflected findings from the northern grainbelt which showed that mouldboard ploughing ef...

New research has revealed that hybrid canola varieties are potentially a profitable break crop option for Western Australia's low rainfall zones and that growers in these areas can make savings by delaying decisions about nitrogen applications for these varieties in particular... DAFWA senior research officer Mark Seymour said the results, presented at this year's Regional Crop Update at Salmon Gums, indicated that hybrid RR lines could provide opportunities for growers in the region to use low rates of nitrogen at seeding and then add more nitrogen, as needed, to reach optimal yield... Mr...
