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...

The majority of current wheat varieties need to be sown in the first half of May in order to flower during the optimal period for yield in most environments, which unfortunately coincides with the period of recent rainfall decline... Growers wishing to maximise farm water-use efficiency need to adopt strategies that will allow them to get as much of their wheat crop as possible flowering during the optimal period in their environment... The article reports results from several experiments conducted across southern Australia investigating the potential for earlier sowing to increase wheat yields in the face of autumn rainfall decline...
