Trials explore chickpea/wheat rotations

Plain text source: 
Trials show that chickpeas, such as this crop at Emerald, Central Queensland, have the potential to lift yields in subsequent wheat crops... Trials of chickpea/wheat rotations in the Central Queensland grain-growing region show that using chickpeas as a break crop could help growers increase yields, protein levels and profitability in subsequent wheat crops... Results for a trial at 'Wongalee', near Theodore, CQ, showed a huge increase in both the yield and protein content of wheat grown after chickpeas. "..
