The need for sorghum to beat the heat.. Professor Graeme Hammer, whose team at QAAFI led the experimentation and modeling, says research has confirmed that yield cannot be estimated at the time of sowing and the superiority of specific genotype and management combinations varies from year to year depending on how the season transpires... "The best we can do is to estimate the risks of what might happen for different scenarios given historical climate data...

Spread of flowering dates of dry sown crops can be successfully achieved through varietal choice and adjusting sowing order of the wet sown crop according to the flowering prediction of the dry sown crop... The aim of this paper is to discuss possibility of using varietal differences in phenology mechanisms to achieve a desired spread of flowering dates after dry sowing... The data were used to estimate: 1) spread for flowering dates of varieties across germination dates, 2) the range of achievable variation through varieties for given sowing dates...

Helps plan sowing dates to spread the flowering window and reduce climatic risks - By Nicole Baxter.. A new online decision-support tool has been designed to help Western Australian growers select wheat varieties and sowing dates to maximise crop growth while minimising losses from frost and heat... Using the tool involves selecting a location, choosing up to three wheat varieties for comparison, changing the sowing date and then checking the flowering dates predicted...
