The maximum potential of collection by baling this material was only 50% of the seed that enters the header... Two different approaches determined that higher temperatures during seed development correlated with greater germinability (less dormancy) when measured at harvest and following five months of after-ripening (Steadman et al. 2004; Steadman & Ellery 2004)... A single batch of seeds will after-ripen faster in the north (e.g. Mullewa) than the south (e.g. Mt. Barker) of the wheat belt due to the temperature difference (Steadman et al. 2003a)...
