Eyes on the market as season unfolds.. We sowed our canola, oats and barley deep - 18 centimetres, with around 8cm of soil over the seed in the furrow - to chase moisture... As a first-time dry sower, we decided to sow barley, wheat and brown manure vetch, as we considered these to be lower risk in a false-break scenario, and they can still be managed with a staggered germination...

Modern world market looms large for ancient wheat product.. An innovative green wheat product grown and produced in Australia is gaining a strong foothold in overseas functional food markets, but its innovator says a lack of local investor support to aid expansion could force him to take the business to North America or Europe..
