fast maturing variety

Catalogue: Ground Cover
Trials show cost of varieties mismatched with sowing time.. The GRDC Variety Specific Agronomy Project at Narrabri in northern NSW has shown that slower-maturing wheat and barley varieties sown in their appropriate early sowing window tend to yield best.. The results emphasise the importance of sowing the correct variety in the earlier part of the optimum sowing window...

Sowing dates - Getting the best from our varieties and optimising whole-farm wheat yield (NSW).. For the change to happen, planting of slow maturing varieties with either stronger vernalisation (winter wheats) or photo-period requirements (slow maturing spring wheats) will be necessary... In a dry-land farming situation where irrigation would not be possible, the early-sown slow varieties would have had an even greater yield advantage over the later-sown faster varieties as the rain that allowed them to emerge did not fall until 25 May...

Slow maturing wheat yields solution to changing climate.. The research project monitored four wheat varieties planted across trial sites at Lake Bolac and Westmere (Vic) in the high rainfall zone, Temora and Junee (NSW) in the medium rainfall zone, and Condoblin (NSW) in the low rainfall zone, with each variety planted between mid-April and late May... Although dry conditions late in winter at Condoblin meant all varieties sown mid-April to mid-May had roughly the same yields, low density plantings benefitted the yield of slow maturing varieties Eaglehawk and Bolac , but reduced yield in fast maturing wheats sown later...

Research carried out with support from the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) shows slow maturing varieties planted earlier in the year have a better chance of delivering consistently high yields for growers in the Southern Cropping Region...
