Adoption and management practices of dry seeding across the WA wheatbelt

Plain text source: 
Whilst there is anecdotal evidence to suggest that dry seeding has been widely adopted in Western Australia, especially in the lower rainfall agronomic zones, the extent and management of dry seeding are not well documented, particularly for wheat crops... The aims of the paper are to determine the extent of dry seeding across the agro-ecological zones of the Western Australian Wheatbelt, to uncover the trends of adoption by soil types, rainfall and crop species and to define the management practices and gaps in knowledge around the risks of dry seeding crops in Western Australia... In the paper results for dry sowing adoption and farmers perception of risk are presented...
