Catalogue: Ground Cover
Comparing yield performance of different broadleaf crop and pasture options as breaks in an intensive cereal phase is the focus of the crop-sequencing project on upper Eyre Peninsula, South Australia... The trial is part of a GRDC-funded project, Profitable Crop Sequencing in Low-rainfall Areas of South-Eastern Australia, which also includes Mallee Sustainable Farming (see above story), Upper North Farming Systems, BCG and Central West Farming Systems...

Choose tolerant wheat varieties to maximise yields (go to From our research, the optimal temperature for reproduction of Pratylenchus thornei is 22C; populations increased, although at slower rates, from 17 to 28C... We have also found reduced growth and yield of wheat and chickpea following canola in a low phosphorus soil (7 mg/kg Colwell P) in two separate 2-year winter crop rotation experiments...
