A group of people in a field (From left) David, Graham, Adam, Jason and Heidi Gooden plan to sow EGA Wedgetail wheat in April this year, if moisture conditions allow, on their farm near Osborne in southern New South Wales... If there is sufficient soil moisture, the Gooden family in southern New South Wales will be among an increasing number of grain growers starting the season early and sowing in April... Season 2015 will be their third year of sowing EGA Wedgetail wheat in April, if conditions allow...

Early sowing pay-off rests on variety choice.. Whistler shows promise for early sowing at Doodlakine and Wickepin, WA.. " because of the poor adaptation of EGA Wedgetail to SA, even if sown in early to mid-April it is unlikely to yield as well as Mace when Mace is sown in its optimal window," he says...

Early lock-up enables a crop sufficient time to achieve biomass levels at flowering to fully recover grain yield but lower residual biomass at lock-up can reduce crop recovery during a sensitive window around or shortly after GS30 in cereals and bud visible in canola... We believe there is a 'sensitive' window when the crop may still be grazed but sufficient residual biomass is required to allow the crop to reach its critical biomass or leaf area to achieve potential grain yields... We firstly present some results form an experiment conducted at Greenethorpe, NSW in 2013 where a range of mechanical defoliation intensities (hard cut - 5 cm, moderate cut - 8 cm and 'clip' cutting - removing leaves) and lock-up timings were imposed to explore their impact on yield recovery in a winter and spring wheat and canola...

Mention of a trade name or company in this publication does not imply endorsement of any product or company by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia... Overall, the production and supply of fertiliser accounted for a large proportion (35%) of the GHG produced from wheat production, and occurred in the pre-farm stage (Table 1)... Overall, constraints have a far smaller effect on heavy soils than on sand plain soils...

Dr James Hunt, former CSIRO Agriculture senior research scientist, says early sowing works best when there is a full profile of moisture... Dr Hunt, who recently became a senior lecturer at La Trobe University, says there are new varieties under development that may assist in widening the sowing window for growers in areas with a shorter growing season... Former CSIRO Agriculture senior research scientist Dr James Hunt, who now works as a senior lecturer at La Trobe University, says sowing earlier than 25 April is a tactic that complements dry sowing...

The crop was assessed for Yr infection at a number of stages throughout the trial... ANOVA was used to assess the impact upon yield as a result of the various treatments and the LSD was used to separate the means... In considering scenarios 1 & 2 where no fungicide is applied, so Yr was not controlled pre grazing, the grazing sees an increase in yield of 0.54 t/ha which is significantly different...
