Rotation crops that are profitable in their own right present the opportunity for more dynamic cropping systems to evolve and will enhance the resilience of irrigated cropping enterprises to seasonal fluctuations in commodity prices and irrigation allocations... While cotton production in rotation with winter cereals is already common place, the majority of cereal crops currently grown..... In summary the project will co-ordinate, publish and deliver "Best Practices Guidelines for Irrigated Wheat in the Northern Region"...

Best Practice Guidelines Cotton Farming Systems.. Growers may achieve maximum profitability by applying additional spring-irrigations... The nitrogen requirement of an 8 t/ha wheat crop is approximately 275 kg N/ha studies in 2008 showed that many long-fallow paddocks that lodged had well in excess of this amount of nitrogen available (see Figure 9 (a))...

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...

Lateral move irrigator boosts WUE and increases yields.. "A great advantage I see is with cereals and canola, you can top-dress and then hit it with a 'rain' just to take that nitrogen into the soil and into the root zone," Terry said... "Often when top-dressing cereals and canola, you're looking for a rain event to take that in. During the irrigation season, we can water-run our nitrogen requirements through the syphons and it will distribute into the root zone...

Increasing Yield of Irrigated Wheat in Queensland and Northern NSW.. We present preliminary results from the GRDC funded 'Achievable Yields' project on the yield potential of irrigated wheat across the region... Results of sampling 12 irrigated wheat paddocks across southern QLD in 2008 (a) mineral N in the top 1.8 m of soil at sowing (b) grain yield reported by farmers, and yield loss calculated from the difference between potential yield (estimated from APSIM or non-lodged quadrats) and quadrat cuts of lodged crops...

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)...
