final grain yield

Catalogue: GRDC Updates
A series of trials have been conducted in the slopes area, north of Somerton in the Tamworth district and close to Purlewaugh in the Coonabarabran district over the last seven years, which have included both dual purpose and grain only varieties of wheat, barley and triticale... Two different types of experiments have been reported in this paper, the first was a designated set of dual purpose experiments with the primary objective of evaluating dual purpose varieties for grazing and grain recovery; the second two experiments were targeted at evaluating the performance of grain only varieties under a grazing and grain management system... Urambie and Oxford to be the best of the four barley varieties evaluated in terms of grain yield (Table 2)...

Row direction and the interactions between these factors have not previously been examined... The research has shown the benefits of solid plant on 75 or 90 cm rows compared to single, double and super single skip configurations narrow solid plant rows have received less attention... There has been considerable interest in the northern cropping zone in sorghum traits such as stay green and low tillering growth habits...

Mixed cropping farmers looking to maximise productivity from winter crops can consider grazing some grain only varieties of wheat, barley and triticale without sacrificing final grain yield... That's been the take home message from recent trial work funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and undertaken by the NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) comparing the performance of dual purpose and grain only varieties in terms of dry matter production and grain yield... Management is critical though with the research confirming that variety selection as well as timing, intensity and number of grazings plays an important role in maintaining grain yield...

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...

The experiments are run over 4 years to test the water use efficiency, productivity and riskiness of: (i) a range of continuous cereal systems and the decisions around inputs, timing and agronomy; and (ii) potential break crop systems; across soils of differing potentials... Comparison with the non N-limiting yield potential estimated using the APSIM model of 5.05 t/ha in the swale, 6.06 t/ha in the mid-slope and 5.12 t/ha in the dune, suggests the actual yields are very close to potential yield in the wheat following pasture in the swale but well below for all treatments in the dune and mid-slope (Figure 3)... A build-up of fertility in the swale where fertilizer applications have been uniform across soil types in the past and the swales have under-performed in the dry years has meant that N was not limiting in this soil type and potential yield was attainable in the wheat following pasture where a disease break had been provided...
