Research by the Western Australian No-Tillage Farmers Association (WANTFA) shows effective use of pre-emergent herbicides when sowing wheat early in dry conditions can help the crop out-compete weeds and lift yields... Dr Minkey says the research indicated that Sakura and Boxer Gold helped control weeds when wheat was dry-seeded early, but the effectiveness of trifluralin was limited on heavy soils. ".. Overall, Sakura was the most effective in controlling germination of annual ryegrass in both early and late-sown wheat," Dr Minkey says...

Give early seeding technique a dry run.. "Studies supported by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) have shown that, overall, dry seeding will give you an advantage in well managed conservation farming systems, especially in dry years," he said... Dr Minkey said a new GRDC funded project, involving WANTFA, CSIRO and the Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA), was refining guidelines for successful early sowing, including tips on reducing the risks and increasing profits...
