The Lower Eyre Peninsula survey showed most paddocks had internal blackleg infection levels below 10% unlikely to suffer a yield or oil content penalty... Current varieties have a number of resistance genes if blackleg overcomes one resistance gene, other resistance genes remain effective and so the crops should not become completely susceptible... Final grain yield after slashing was similar in all varieties (about 0.8 t/ha average), except CB1206 (0.2 t/ha)...

The main risks associated with dry sowing are weed management, crop establishment and frost... Dry sowing can boost crop yields, increase sown area and reduce the risks of end-of-season heat-stress events... Dr Minkey says dry sowing is best done when weed seedbanks are low to reduce the risk of yield loss from weed competition...

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...

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 sowing wheat in April can help to optimise farm yields, increase farm area sown and reduce the risks of later season heat shocks across much of WA without significantly affecting frost risk... Less is known about the effects of dry sowing on wheat yields when there are early season soil water deficits... Dr Fletcher found the risk of heat shock fell from 25 to 14 per cent when wheat was sown dry, mainly due to a tighter and earlier flowering window compared to wet sowing of wheat...

More WA growers spinning the dice on early sowing.. Andrew Fletcher, of CSIRO, will be presenting the survey results at the GRDC Grains Research Update, Perth, scheduled for February 29 and March 1 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre... GRDC is continuing to fund research into management techniques that will help to reduce the risks associated with early and dry sowing of wheat in WA and testing varieties under a range of early and dry sown conditions...

Research shows benefits of dry sowing wheat early.. Crop modelling work shows that dry sowing wheat in April can maximise whole-farm yields in Western Australia and minimise the likelihood of late-season heat stress, without significantly affecting frost risk... "Using data from 54 seasons at seven sites across the WA grainbelt, the modelling work shows farm-level yield benefits of up to 35 per cent - or up to 0.5 to 1.2 tonnes per hectare - from dry seeding wheat before autumn rains, compared with wet sowing wheat after autumn rains," he said...
