planting barley

Catalogue: Broadacre Field Crops DAFF QLD
Rotate barley crops with non-hosts such as wheat (to control foliar pathogens), legumes or summer crops; avoid sowing barley on barley and maintain clean fallows... The main foliar diseases of barley are leaf spots, rusts and powdery mildew... Barley is tolerant to root-lesion nematode infection and is a good winter cropping option in infested areas...

High rainfall zone growers should consider growing a malting or feed barley over wheat as the first cereal after the break crop, based on data from National Variety Trials (NVT) in the region and Southern Farming Systems (SFS)... Assuming malt quality is always achieved (which would not be farm experience) and not taking into account possible differences in nitrogen applied, Mr Poole says yields of 5.31t/ha for feed barley at a price of $200/t would require a premium of $11/t to break even, taking account of the reduced yield that goes with growing malting barley based on NVT results... Based on the figures, Mr Poole says there is a "huge" case to be made as to whether or not growers in the HRZ should be planting barley as the first cereal after canola and push it harder with more nitrogen like they would with a wheat crop...
