Canola sown at Pindar as part of the GRDC RCSN early sowing trials in 2015... Trials in Western Australia's northern agricultural region have shown that if growers want to take advantage of very early (early April) germination opportunities in this region, they will require a range of variety maturity choices to achieve the best yields... Of the six wheat varieties trialled in 2015, at sites near Pindar and Yuna, the slow-maturing ForrestA variety had the highest yields of 4 to 4.2 tonnes per hectare when sown early on 9 April at Yuna...

DAFWA wheat agronomy project manager Christine Zaicou-Kunesch with Richard Quinlan, of Planfarm, and Woongoondy grower Gerard Rowe at the GRDC-funded RCSN early sowing wheat trial site at Yuna... Ms Shackley said the trials aimed to determine the grain yield and quality responses of a range of slow, mid and fast-maturing winter and spring wheat varieties when sown in mid-April, compared with more conventional WA wheatbelt sowing times of early and late May... "Most varieties trialled had the highest yields when sown in early May, or the yields were not significantly different between mid-April and early May sowings," Ms Shackley said...

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)...

Influence of fungicide rate (mean of fungicide products - four site mean) Stem rust control assessed over the four trial sites revealed that using high rates was essential for the control of the disease, even if the fungicide had been applied prophylactically (before infection was visible in the crop)... Influence of cultivar resistance and fungicide application (Prosaro ) on yield and stem rust severity measured on the flag sheath 18 days after fungicide application at early dough (GS82) and assessed at mid dough - physiological maturity (GS85-90) - Bairnsdale, Gippsland, Victoria, 2010... The yield potential for the crop with no nitrogen applied is estimated at GS30 from the results of numerous of trials conducted in that region where NDVI at GS30 is divided by the number of growing degree days (GDD) greater than 0 C since planting, referred to as the INSEY units (in season estimate of yield)...

Researchers are questioning the merits of early sowing of chickpeas in Central West NSW after trial results show the practice may not result in higher yields despite earlier flowering... Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) district agronomists, Leigh Jenkins, Warren and Rohan Brill, Coonamble told growers at the recent Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Updates the disease risk and the impact of low temperatures on flowering may undermine yield benefits... Disease and frost damage are the two major constraints to chickpea production in the northern cropping region and in both cases sowing date can influence yield through avoidance of cold temperatures during flowering, and to reduce the effect of disease, Ms Jenkins said...
