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))...

Irrigated wheat appears to have a similar optimum planting rate to dryland: around 40kg/ha (100 plants/m2), possibly lower if the seed is going to be concentrated on top of a bed with large furrow gaps between beds. Planting higher rates than this will increase lodging susceptibility and could cause yield loss if it induces greater rates of lodging... Further work will be needed to experiment with different timings of N application to see how sensitive the strategy is to the date of N application, and if any slow release fertiliser products would be of benefit... Yield and water use benchmarks Preliminary analysis has been undertaken to determine the maximum yields that can be achieved from irrigated wheat in the northern region, and how much water is required by the crop in order to achieve these yields...

The Achievable Yields project is aiming to set yield and water use benchmarks for irrigated wheat in the northern region, while also helping growers address the main agronomic challenges that prevent them from maximising grain yield... Reducing sowing rate for lodging control: 2009 trials In 2008, very high seeding rates of 200+ seeds/m2 were used in many locations for irrigated wheat (or approximately 80kg/ha of seed or higher)... Yield and water use benchmarks Preliminary analysis has been undertaken to determine the maximum yields that can be achieved from irrigated wheat in the northern region, and how much water is required by the crop in order to achieve these yields...

Big decisions reshaping the cotton landscape.. Mr Crosby found that 12 tonnes a hectare of irrigated maize had the same gross margins as 10 bales/ha of cotton, and twice the area of maize compared with cotton could be watered using the same bore pumping capacity - meaning a lot more product per irrigation season... Cotton the profit choice, wheat the fall-back By Kellie Penfold Gross margin analysis shows cotton still easily returns the highest profit per megalitre, when water is not an issue A gross margin analysis of irrigated cotton compared with irrigated winter wheat based on the 2008 returns has found that, on a per megalitre basis, cotton is still more profitable...
