Agronomy for high yielding cereal environments: varieties, agronomic strategies and case studies Agronomy for high yielding cereal environments: varieties, agronomic strategies and case studies

Plain text source: 
While irrigated production was the focus of the work, the results are relevant to dryland growers in high yielding environments, who have experienced lodging in the last 2-3 years... It is important to note that we used various commercial fungicides to control rust at each location: good disease control is imperative in achieving high yields in susceptible varieties... The soil test just prior to sowing showed 200 units of N to 90cm depth, and another test suggested that a further 200 units of N was available as deep N below 90cm, but it was difficult to know how variable this was across the four different sections...
