BETTER AGRONOMIC DECISIONS FOR NEW WHEAT VARIETIES

Plain text source: 
Several I & I NSW projects in central western NSW in 2009 aimed to gather data on a number of different wheat varieties that have been quickly adopted as preferred varieties and to compare them to older more well known varieties... To establish some baseline phenology data, a selection of wheat varieties were grown under irrigation and sown at three sowing dates (Figure 1)... Observations recorded 15 August showed marked differences between individual varieties with the effects of plant population having an impact on the rate of crop development as soil moisture was progressively becoming a major limiting factor (Figure 3)...
