Trial shows commercial hybrids deliver higher returns

Plain text source: 
Higher grain yields were achieved and infection levels of blackleg reduced when commercial hybrid seed was used... Yeruga Crop Research's Trent Potter says the aim was to measure the effect of retaining hybrid sowing seed on plant vigour, internal blackleg infection, oil content and grain yield, compared with the original commercial hybrid bought from a seed supplier... Hybrid seed assessed included Conventional (Hyola 50 at all sites and Taurus at Bool Lagoon), Clearfield (45Y77, 45Y82, 46Y83 and Hyola 575CL) and triazine-tolerant (CB Tumby HT and CB Jardee HT)...
