Increasing row spacing up to 30 centimetres has no effect on wheat yield, when yield potential is less than 3.5 tonnes per hectare... In a dry season, increasing row spacing from 18 to 36 and 54cm resulted in yield penalties in wheat and barley but no difference in water use was recorded with different row spacings... To establish soil nutrient status in systems using wider row spacing a modified approach to soil sampling is suggested...

Schooner and Gairdner have been the preferred malting barley varieties in central NSW, with smaller areas of Baudin and some Fitzroy in the north... At both 77 and 101 mm, Fleet showed the least reduction in emergence, followed by Buloke , Commander and Schooner... Overall, the results emphasise the need to sow varieties that have short coleoptiles at shallow depths and to take care with seed grading and the use of seed dressings...
