Canola tops break-crop gains.. Canola plantings have continued to increase in Western Australia and local researchers are working collaboratively to fine-tune tactics to help optimise profits from canola and other break crops across the grain belt... CSIRO senior research scientist Dr Roger Lawes says modelling shows that adding a break crop such as canola to continuous cereal rotations can be worth an extra 0.5t/ha of wheat following the break phase...

Growing break crops in a well-managed way can significantly and consistently boost the yields and profits of subsequent wheat crops in good seasons and reduce overall farming risks... Dr Lawes said an analysis of 30 years of data from across the WA grainbelt using the crop and economic modelling systems APSIM and LUSO indicated there was a 0.6 tonne per hectare average yield benefit in wheat crops grown after a lupin break crop and 0.4t/ha benefit following canola, compared with wheat grown after wheat... "We found the first wheat crop in a continuous wheat sequence could increase costs and depress yields in the second and third year wheat crops and reduce the probability of these subsequent wheat crops making a profit," he said...
