Raised beds need on-farm water plans.. Late-season waterlogging events have been rare in the six years since Tim Johnston, a soil and water research scientist with the Department of Primary Industries, Victoria (DPI), started assessing the environmental impacts of water and nutrient losses from raised beds... Mr Johnston says the reduced runoff from raised beds is the result of improved soil structure under the bed, leading to increased water holding capacity of the soil and greater water use by the crop...

Many catchment management plans have been prepared... Land use change to reduce leakage This research shows that drainage from cropping systems can be greatly reduced by replacing long fallow or continuous wheat systems with wheat/sorghum opportunity cropping or continuous sorghum... It has been found that black pointed wheat grain actually germinates faster than normal grain and is predisposed to sprouting should further rainfall occur...
