We've started harvesting the barley, with canola, lupins, chickpeas and wheat to follow... Maintenance on the header was a major focus before we started canola windrowing and harvesting the barley and wheat...

Research by the Western Australian No-Tillage Farmers Association (WANTFA) shows effective use of pre-emergent herbicides when sowing wheat early in dry conditions can help the crop out-compete weeds and lift yields... Dr Minkey says the research indicated that Sakura and Boxer Gold helped control weeds when wheat was dry-seeded early, but the effectiveness of trifluralin was limited on heavy soils. ".. Overall, Sakura was the most effective in controlling germination of annual ryegrass in both early and late-sown wheat," Dr Minkey says...

Early sowing pay-off rests on variety choice.. Whistler shows promise for early sowing at Doodlakine and Wickepin, WA.. " because of the poor adaptation of EGA Wedgetail to SA, even if sown in early to mid-April it is unlikely to yield as well as Mace when Mace is sown in its optimal window," he says...

"The 2014 season was unprecedented in terms of stem frost damage, with the Junee trial site experiencing 18 stem frost events and 75 frosts in total, and while the early-sown crops did not out-perform main-season wheats, the results were not too bad, and it was the first season in a very long time where early sowing was not by far the most profitable thing to do," Dr Hunt said... At Junee, winter wheats sown on April 7 yielded lower than spring wheats sown on May 21, with Gregory achieving 3t/ha compared to 2.5t/ha from Wedgetail... "There are other long-season wheat varieties available that have a higher stem rust resistance rating, including Bolac , Forrest , EGA-Wedgetail , Manning and SQP Revenue , and we recommend that growers should, if possible, look to growing these or others with stem rust resistance in the next season," he said...

Time of sowing trials in south west Victoria over four years have showed that sowing in the last week of April and first week of May gives the highest wheat yields... CSIRO research team leader James Hunt said the key to sowing early is selecting the best variety to suit the time of sowing... "Sowing within five days of the optimal sowing window will give the best results, so growers who want to sow a majority of their wheat program within its optimal window can do so by choosing a range of varieties including fast and slow spring wheats and winter wheats," he said...
