dry seeding cereal

Catalogue: GRDC Media
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...
