Consider long-season wheat in the mix.. "Early-sown crops can be exposed to more leaf disease (especially yellow spot and septoria nodorum blotch) than later sown crops, but we are finding that response to foliar fungicide is dependent on season and crop rotation," Ms Zaicou-Kunesch says... Separate 2014 wheat agronomy project trials at sites from Geraldton to Esperance will also continue this year to assess flowering response of wheat varieties sown from early April to mid-June as part of efforts to quantify the effects of spring frost...

Time of sowing trials run by SARDI in South Australia in 2014 showed that despite widespread frost damage, the highest yields still resulted from wheat sown in mid to late April... The ideal sowing time for Trojan will be May 1 (10 days earlier)... "There are other long-season wheat varieties available that have a higher stem rust resistance rating, including Bolac , Forrest , EGA-Wedgetail , Manning and SQP Revenue , and we recommend that growers should, if possible, look to growing these or others with stem rust resistance in the next season," he said...

"The 2014 season was unprecedented in terms of stem frost damage, with the Junee trial site experiencing 18 stem frost events and 75 frosts in total, and while the early-sown crops did not out-perform main-season wheats, the results were not too bad, and it was the first season in a very long time where early sowing was not by far the most profitable thing to do," Dr Hunt said... At Junee, winter wheats sown on April 7 yielded lower than spring wheats sown on May 21, with Gregory achieving 3t/ha compared to 2.5t/ha from Wedgetail...
