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 benefits should outweigh challenges.. Dr James Hunt: early sowing has huge potential in the HRZ... Four years of GRDC-funded trials by Southern Farming Systems, the Foundation for Arable Research (Australia) and CSIRO have repeatedly shown that the highest yields come from crops sown in late-April to mid-May, and from cultivars that best suit a given sowing time...

Growers in southern NSW are used to dealing with frost at flowering in spring, and switching to slow maturing cultivars when sowing early is essential to avoid flowering frost damage... "To put 2014 into perspective, early sowing of slow maturing cultivars in southern NSW did not work as well as it has in previous years, but it wasn't terrible and this was the first year for a very long time where sowing early wasn't by far the most profitable thing to do," Dr Hunt said... "We have to learn what we can from 2014 in order to manage these risks into the future."..

The majority of current wheat varieties need to be sown in the first half of May in order to flower during the optimal period for yield in most environments, which unfortunately coincides with the period of recent rainfall decline... Growers wishing to maximise farm water-use efficiency need to adopt strategies that will allow them to get as much of their wheat crop as possible flowering during the optimal period in their environment... The article reports results from several experiments conducted across southern Australia and farmer experience investigating the potential for earlier sowing to increase wheat yields in the face of autumn rainfall decline...
