In summary, 20 trials have now recently been undertaken across a number of seasons and locations in NSW. None of them have demonstrated S responses in yield or oil %. This does not exclude deficiency and yield penalties from occurring but does highlight that the frequency and the likelihood is not high... In summary, using Yield Prophet as a way of increasing soil water knowledge is more difficult to trial than probes... In summary, the growth in the use of probes to understand soil water is easily explained using the framework above...

The availability of herbicide tolerant lentil varieties (XT) reduces the risks of production in this crop... In some cases pod set of beans was poor early on due to the cooler temperatures and overcast conditions during early flowering, and in some crops of chickpeas a number of empty pods were observed because temperatures failed to reach critical levels for seed set... Similarly in lentils, ascochyta blight was observed in crops relatively early and reduced grain yield and quality in the more susceptible varieties, like PBA Flash , where it was not adequately controlled...
