A trial in Western Australia's northern grainbelt has confirmed that narrow row spacing can boost wheat yields while acting as an important non-herbicide tactic to out-compete weeds... "Results from this trial and previous research suggests that farmers will benefit from using the narrowest row spacing practical, and I believe this should be a consideration if they are thinking about upgrading machinery," researcher Peter Newman said... Mr Newman, a communications leader with the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative (AHRI) and based at Planfarm, coordinated the trial funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and supported by the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA)...

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...

The trial consisted of a comparison between 2 wheat and 2 barley varieties, grown either at 15 or 30 cm row spacing's with 4 rates of either granular MAP or liquid P fertiliser - in this case ammoniated phosphoric acid (Easy NP )... Trials were sown to Crusader wheat, at 30 and 40 cm row spacing with 6 rates of P as granular MAP or ammoniated phosphoric acid (Easy NP )... Liquid vs. granular fertilisers Trials conducted by NSW DPI and Incitec-Pivot Ltd in 2004 under high yield potential on the Liverpool Plains compared wheat responses between liquid starter fertilisers (Easy NP and DAP-H2SO4) and granular products (DAP and MAP)...

Changes in agronomy can affect yield of chickpeas... In general increasing row spacing may decrease yield of chickpea varieties, even in a dry season... Over a winter pulse area of 125,000 ha, the increase in crop production would be valued at $2.5 to $3 million per annum...
