" GRDC Crop Updates 23-24 February 2011, Western Region, Perth WA, Michael Robertson 17 September 2013 Michael Robertson, CSIRO, talks about Pros & cons of dry seeding to counter variable seasonal breaks... In many regions of the wheatbelt the timing of opening rains has become more variable and the number of days available for seeding has declined, putting pressure on the seeding operation and lending to more interest in drying cereals... Growers differ in approach to dry seeding, from a planned approach with set percentage of the program to be dry sown, through to an aggressive approach where a large percentage of the program could be dry sown if opening rains are late...

" Increasing water use efficiency and decreasing input costs for sustainable and profitable farms in a changing climate.. Growers in the Liebe region (Coorow, Dalwallinu, Perenjori and Wongan-Ballidu shires) have been seriously affected by recent droughts and as a result are looking at strategies to enable them to better adapt to a changing climate and seasonal variability... are looking to reduce input costs and adopt flexible farming systems that will allow them to retain their sustainability and profitability when faced with a changing climate...

Give early seeding technique a dry run.. "Studies supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) have shown that, overall, dry seeding will give you an advantage in well managed conservation farming systems, especially in dry years," he said... Dr Minkey said a new GRDC funded project, involving WANTFA, CSIRO and the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA), was refining guidelines for successful early sowing, including tips on reducing the risks and increasing profits...

Crop simulation modelling has revealed that dry seeding up to half of a 3000 hectare wheat program in a low rainfall area of Western Australia can deliver consistent yield benefits and significant increases in profits over time... CSIRO researcher Michael Robertson will present the results at this month's 2011 Agribusiness Crop Updates, coordinated by the Grains Industry Association of Western Australia (GIWA) on behalf of the WA Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) and the GRDC... " the results illustrate that earlier sowing dates through dry seeding of cereals generally results in higher yields, in the absence of frost," Dr Robertson said...

A crop simulation study shows that dry seeding on light soils in a low-rainfall area of Western Australia can, over time, measurably increase yields and profits... Researchers from CSIRO, the Department of Agriculture and Food, WA (DAFWA) and Planfarm say that despite the positive findings, growers need to remain aware of the risks of dry seeding, which include crop failure, inadequate weed control and wind erosion... CSIRO researcher Michael Robertson says the study found that dry seeding up to 50 per_cent of a 3000ha wheat program at Mullewa produced (in 80 per_cent of seasons) wheat yields 0.1 to 0.3 tonnes a hectare better than those achieved from waiting to seed in wet conditions...

Whilst there is anecdotal evidence to suggest that dry seeding has been widely adopted in Western Australia, especially in the lower rainfall agronomic zones, the extent and management of dry seeding are not well documented, particularly for wheat crops... The aims of the paper are to determine the extent of dry seeding across the agro-ecological zones of the Western Australian Wheatbelt, to uncover the trends of adoption by soil types, rainfall and crop species and to define the management practices and gaps in knowledge around the risks of dry seeding crops in Western Australia... Central Wheatbelt "We prefer to sow canola dry as I have had good results doing this, less staggered germination, better early vigour etc. we only dry sow wheat into clean paddocks where I don't need weed control"..

Dry or "early" seeding of wheat, when undertaken at appropriate times and seasons, should yield a modest additional profit... The economic outcomes are computed in a particular hypothetical case, and summarised using Prospect Theory... Taking account of prior summer rain, a criterion level of moisture after 31 March which constitutes the break has been computed for all years from 1976 onwards...
