greater grain yield

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The main findings were that raised beds provided improved drainage and were consistently drier than conventional cropping... In 2003 wheat grew better on the conventional cultivation than the raised beds, a difference that continued through to harvest when significantly greater grain yield was measured on the conventional cultivation (6.9 t/ha)... The findings from the project provide additional knowledge of the key soil physical properties, together with crop yields, on raised beds compared with cropping on conventional cultivation and pasture in south-western Victoria...

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The objective of the project was to provide management information to growers and advisers to increase the productivity of wheat and barley in the high rainfall zone (HRZ) of south-eastern Australia... An evaluation of the impacts of the project conducted by the evaluation group Clear Horizon showed that of growers (n=20) who attended the workshops, field and results days, 90% were aware of the factsheets and of those, 80% had changed their management practice as a result, with 95% stating that they would change practice in the future... Results from the project confirm that the basic physiological principles of the ideotype model relating to phase durations, shoot and ear numbers and canopy size are achievable and traits exist within the current germplasm...
