Caption 1: CSIRO's GRDC-funded early sowing of wheat trial site at Wickepin last year shows a range of plant development rates dependent on time of sowing and use of long, mid or short maturing variety... But the risks can be reduced by using suitable varieties and tools such as modern no-tillage techniques, summer fallow management and more cost-effective insecticides and fungicides to protect against pests and diseases... This year's NVT trial data includes more detail about wheat variety performance across several years in a range of environments...

The best way of achieving that is through a double break and that is 36.23: a situation where you might have a pasture or a hay crop or a grain legume and then the 41.58: next year you have a canola so you have got two good years of control on grass weeds and 46.79: you have also suppressed root diseases like Take-All and you are really setup to be able 51.33: to grab an early sowing opportunity and go in and sow a slow maturing wheat without getting 56.479: a knockdown on any of the weeds... For 125.09: instance in southern NSW if you have got Wedgetail and Gregory, Wedgetail being a winter wheat, 130.74: Gregory a mid-fast spring wheat you can take advantage of a sowing opportunity over a three 136.75: month period by switching which variety you choose then you maximise the yield of both 142.2: by ensuring that as much of that crop is flowering during the optimal period...

And there is essentially three different ways 22.52: of being able to hit that flowering window, which start at the end of February and move 28.81: through until May. 29.789: So the first opportunity you have got is with a winter wheat and the window for them opens 34.82: at the end of Feb, you can sown them through March into early April, even to the middle 40.39: of April...

"The modelling work follows field trials in southern areas of Victoria and New South Wales which have demonstrated a significant yield benefit from applying this strategy," he said... "The eastern states trials showed that early sown wheat crops yield more because less water is lost to evaporation; roots grow deeper and use more water; water is converted to dry-matter more efficiently; and a longer stem elongation phase increases grain numbers... "The modelling work, using the Agricultural Production Systems Simulator (APSIM), found that potential yield gains were highest in regions such as Esperance and Kojonup where there are more frequent early rainfall sowing opportunities and the yield potential is higher," he said...
