Research contributors: 
Plain text source: 
Grain growers in 300-400mm Australian dryland farming systems lack a profitable oilseed broadleaf crop with stable yields that can be rotated with cereals (and field pea/chickpea)... Research is needed to address the comparative poor harvest index of B. juncea against canola ( Brassica napus) ... Suitable production zones have been successfully modelled using a median yield of 1.5t/ha (APSIM simulations), but model simulations should be redone for a long term median yield of 1.2t/ha...
