It is important to note that we used various commercial fungicides to control rust at each location: good disease control is imperative in achieving high yields in susceptible varieties... The soil test just prior to sowing showed 200 units of N to 90cm depth, and another test suggested that a further 200 units of N was available as deep N below 90cm, but it was difficult to know how variable this was across the four different sections...

Overall, the performance of the barley grain only varieties showed they are capable of producing around 6 t/ha of dry matter and still yielding between 2.7 and 3.4 t/ha of grain... GRDC Grains Research Update Coonabarabran, February 2014 purpose variety the yield performance of Urambie is not unexpected it also had a very high level of screenings at 26% (data not shown) and extremely poor retention which meant it would not have been acceptable into even Feed 2...
