A high yielding variety with early mid maturity, slightly quicker than Baxter in the north and similar to Ventura in the South Solid Stripe rust resistance package (MR) based on Adult Plant Resistance Good tolerance to Root Lesion Nematodes (P.thornei) (MT-MI) Long Coleoptiles with strong early seedling vigour Market leading grain package with large grain size, low screenings High protein accumulation.. In short season northern areas one irrigation at early pod-fill (early-mid August) may be all that is required... ) a e p d l e fi ( L m 0 5 1 ) a e) pa l do ln ea fic (( LL mm 00 53 13 ) a e) )p)a n nl idio plpn e u ua lfilc (((( LLLL mmmm 0000 5500 1134 ) L / g 0 0 4 ( e t a o h t e m i d ) L / g 0 0 4 ( e t a o h t e m i d ) L / g 0 0 4 ( e t a o h t e m i d d i r p) oL l/ cg a d0 i0 m6 i( y a e w c r n e e p i ))) c u4t 4 4 S S1s 1 1 e p // /z/ y0u 0o0o eqr l1 1m1C l/n / / S r a r 5o 5 5 a DH C e 0 y0F0y I a a -y y y U -r - r pr rB Q0i0si0i ppp I - 000 x Ox x L 4e4 e4e0 Ee,e-,e,0 t5t 5t5 L 6 Ba5a 5a5 o1om1o1 Ah hi h o 333 Wt td t h 111 e ea e c RRR Omnu EmaEmEa LiPi PiP FD(DD(D(G..

No matter whether chickpea seed is acquired commercially or grower retained on-farm, it is important that it is of high quality... Poor quality seed can result in low plant establishment due to poor germination, vigour and/or disease... Seed size can also be quickly calculated at home by counting out 200 seeds and weighing - multiply the weight (grams) by five to get a 1000-seed weight; or divide 200,000 by the weight (grams) to get number of seeds per kilogram (depending on your preferred method of calculating seeding rates)...

DNA testing of 36 seed lots from commercial chickpea crops identified a high incidence of genetic contamination.. Growers can minimise the risk of planting the wrong variety or a mixture of varieties by acquiring planting seed from a reputable seed supplier.. Selected results from 36 chickpea seed lots ex 2011 harvest showing the variety declared at receival, 100 seed weight and identity of each of 8 seedlings as determined by four SSR markers based on DNA profiles..

Other quality traits, such as seed coat colour or defects due to disease, weather or insect damage, are determined visually and are highly subjective... For project leader Dr Joe Panozzo and researcher Linda McDonald, from the Victorian Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources, the project has involved developing mathematical models for each seed quality trait based on information extracted from images of the seeds... Once the images have been captured, processing software, developed as part of the project, enhances each image and identifies the boundary of each seed, measures colour variation to determine defects and applies the laser height contours to determine seed shape, volume and any damage...

Test your seed for the best start to 2016.. The result will show the percentage of seeds that produce normal seedlings compared with abnormal seedlings and dead seeds under favourable conditions... Mr Midwood says that testing the seed now will give growers the information and time to make the best decision if their seed is found to be wanting: whether it is to buy seed, adjust rotations or accept the risk...

The framework for all winter crop production in Victoria is based on the principles and practice of successful wheat farming... At the last census, 2005, it was estimated that 1.3 million hectares were sown to wheat but DEPI estimates for more recent seasons indicate that 1.6 million hectares has been sown each year... A key profitability issue for the industry is ensuring that research continues to deliver improvements in wheat quality in order to increase market share in a competitive world arena...
