In summary VSAP is: A summary of the key reasons for the release of the new variety, including strengths and weaknesses, and how the new variety should be managed relative to current common varieties... Overall, Total N fixed was strongly linked to dry matter production and rainfall... Overall, early removal is still likely to be the best option on heavy clay soils...

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The objective of the project was to provide management information to growers and advisers to increase the productivity of wheat and barley in the high rainfall zone (HRZ) of south-eastern Australia... An evaluation of the impacts of the project conducted by the evaluation group Clear Horizon showed that of growers (n=20) who attended the workshops, field and results days, 90% were aware of the factsheets and of those, 80% had changed their management practice as a result, with 95% stating that they would change practice in the future... Results from the project confirm that the basic physiological principles of the ideotype model relating to phase durations, shoot and ear numbers and canopy size are achievable and traits exist within the current germplasm...

A survey of 142 Australian agronomists found that 20 per cent recommend the use of plant growth regulators in crop management of wheat, mainly due to improved lodging resistance followed by height reduction and improved yield... The paper provides a brief overview of current plant growth regulators (PGRs) and reports on selected results of a survey of Australian agronomist's use of PGRs in wheat production... When agronomists participating in the survey were asked to explain the benefits that come from using PGRs in wheat, effects on lodging and the related theme of height reduction were frequently reported (Figure 1)...
