Although there were no differences in nitrogen fixation between the three varieties on trial, the narrow row spacings also delivered significantly better results for nitrogen derived from the atmosphere and total amount of N fixed, particularly at the Dalby site... Previous research has shown that as a legume crop's demand for N increases, so does the N fixation by that crop, but Mr McKenzie said the row spacing effect on N fixation could not simply be explained by higher plant N demand as all crops were at the same plant population density of 30 plants/m2... "In the narrow rows we observed that total N on a hectare basis was higher due to higher plant biomass, but also the proportion of the N derived from the atmosphere was higher in the narrow rows," he said...

Since the soil P tests that growers and advisors use for their fertiliser decisions were calibrated using conventional tillage and narrow row spacing's, we are investigating the effect of increasing row spacing, and increased concentrations of P in the seeding furrow, on P fertiliser responses... The Temora trial was dry sown and received rain shortly after sowing whereas the Condobolin trial was sown into good moisture, but in both cases establishment percentage declined as seeds were sown more closely together, whether from increasing seeding rate or widening row spacing... A row spacing by phosphorus trial from 2008 was re-sown in 2009, using 2 cm auto steer so that treatments of on-row and inter-row seeding were superimposed at rates of 0, 4 or 8 kg/ha of phosphorus, using the same row spacing for each plot as used in 2008...

Ben Cripps of Ogilvie is widening his canola row spacings to help reduce risks and cut costs - a strategy that is being further examined with GRDC funding... The Cripps family at Ogilvie is part of a new movement in the northern agricultural region pushing canola row spacings wider to reduce risks and cut costs... Ben says 2014 trials on their property found that using low seeding rates of 1.5 kilograms/ha at 60cm spacing produced marginally higher yields - about 80kg/ha - than using seeding rates of 3kg/ha at 30cm spacings...
