DAW00012 - Variety specific agronomy for wheat yield and quality in the Western Region

Plain text source: 
A project testing new wheat varieties from a number of sources under a range of agronomic treatments in the Western Region was carried out over a period of four years... Results from the project have reinforced earlier findings that the greatest yield improvements are likely to result from the combination of new varieties with appropriate management practices rather than from either source alone... The project team made a substantial contribution to this process by providing agronomic information at the time of release of the variety, assistance with Farmnotes, balanced promotion at field days and Updates, and an understanding of the impact of the variety's short coleoptile on its response to seed rate...
