Catalogue: GRDC Updates (North)
GRDC values the contributions made by its research partners during the 2004 series of Grains Research Updates.. Overall, there were 50 comparisons, 45 showing a positive yield increase with fluid and 5 with no yield difference... Overall, there were 11 comparisons, with 4 yield decreases due to fluids and 7 with no yield differences...

Higher yields require increased monitoring and correct management practices to avoid yield penalties... nitrogen supply at sowing should be 100-120kg n/ha, including the amount already in the soil and amount to be applied... Trial results have shown a narrower row spacing, such as 17.5 centimetres (above), can give higher yields in irrigated wheat than wider row spacings...

LIFTING YIELDS FROM 5T/HA TO 8T/HA OR MORE Growing irrigated wheat in southern New South Wales and northern Victoria is more than simply adding water to dryland varieties... Growers need to protect the crop at head emergence and into flowering by pushing the first irrigation period forward, compared with when they would normally irrigate (see Figure 1 below)... Trial results have shown a narrower row spacing, such as 17.5 centimetres (above), can give higher yields in irrigated wheat than wider row spacings...

Low drought induced irrigation allocations and low winter and spring rainfalls over the last five years have led to farmers using water to irrigate wheat and other winter crops for survival in spring... The only growers able to target 8 tonnes have been the bore pumpers in the Hillston and Darlington Point district who have achieved crops with 8-10t/ha yields... Although the 8 tonne system uses more water at 685mm compared to the one spring irrigation at 420mm the gross margin per megalitre is higher...
