Research shows benefits of dry sowing wheat early.. Crop modelling work shows that dry sowing wheat in April can maximise whole-farm yields in Western Australia and minimise the likelihood of late-season heat stress, without significantly affecting frost risk... "Using data from 54 seasons at seven sites across the WA grainbelt, the modelling work shows farm-level yield benefits of up to 35 per cent - or up to 0.5 to 1.2 tonnes per hectare - from dry seeding wheat before autumn rains, compared with wet sowing wheat after autumn rains," he said...

Dual-purpose crops maximise potential.. After 105 millimetres of rain was recorded at the family's 1024-hectare farm between 24 and 28 February, a paddock of SF Brazzil canola was sown on 9 March, followed by three paddocks of EGA Wedgetail wheat sown from 10 to 11 March...
