The definition of drought is going to change dependent on your specific environment... By combining different parents of known good performance under drought, and then yield testing in the target environment we have been able to select varieties such as Gladius that perform exceptionally well under most drought conditions encountered by growers...

Sowing time is a major determinant of crop yield because, in partnership with the variety chosen, it determines the timing of key development stages and the environmental stresses at these key stages... Flowering time is a key factor in adapting a crop to an environment... Varieties differ in intrinsic earliness, a measure of how quickly they flower under optimum conditions...

The optimal sowing time for wheat is a compromise... KeY POINts early sowing can accelerate establishment and make full use of the growing season but can increase the risk of frost during critical growth stages and hayingoff in a dry finish... in Australia, developmental stages are commonly referred to as 'growth stages'...
