continuous wheat system

Catalogue: Ground Cover
Scientists working on the National Water Use Efficiency (WUE) Initiative have compiled a package of best management practices that growers can adopt to increase grain productivity... Effective summer weed control saves water and soil nitrogen and facilitates early sowing.. Slow-maturing spring wheats sown in mid-April provide a significant whole-farm benefit..

Precision row placement is likely to have its greatest impact on reducing CR and CRR levels in a no-till farming system with the adoption of GPS guided controlled traffic likely to further benefit this approach... Its main impact on crop productivity has been shown to occur through the disruption of the plants ability to use water efficiently to produce grain (Figure 6)... Plant early in areas of low frost risk, such as higher slopes, and reduce the risk of frost damage by planting more than one variety and by varying planting times...
