With two seasons of field trial data now analysed, Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) agronomist Kerry McKenzie says with some confidence that planting mungbean crops on narrower row-spacings supports higher yields, even if plant populations remain the same... Mr McKenzie says the GRDC-funded pulse agronomy project led by the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI), in partnership with Queensland DAF, at four trial sites in Queensland has demonstrated how agronomic decisions at planting influence crop yield and nitrogen fixation... Damien White, vice-president of the Australian Mungbean Association, says mungbean is the fastest maturing of the summer crop options, with very high water use efficiency: "In a dry year this could make mungbeans the crop to offer the lowest risk and highest potential return to growers."..

Row direction and the interactions between these factors have not previously been examined... The research has shown the benefits of solid plant on 75 or 90 cm rows compared to single, double and super single skip configurations narrow solid plant rows have received less attention... There has been considerable interest in the northern cropping zone in sorghum traits such as stay green and low tillering growth habits...

Mr Milne has been hosting a series of Pulse Agronomy trials, from which early data indicates that a move to 25cm row spacings could deliver an extra 1t/ha compared to 1m rows... "We were growing chickpeas on 30 inch or roughly 75cm row spacings but because the trial showed there was a significantly higher yield on offer we have already halved our row spacings to 15" (37cm) - all we did was double planted them with our 30" planter to get our 15" row spacing... " Mr Milne owns and leases a total of 600 hectares of highly fertile black soil country on the Jimbour Plain just north of Dalby, growing dryland sorghum, chickpeas, faba beans, mung beans, barley and wheat, as well as some irrigated cotton and corn...

The trial consisted of a comparison between 2 wheat and 2 barley varieties, grown either at 15 or 30 cm row spacing's with 4 rates of either granular MAP or liquid P fertiliser - in this case ammoniated phosphoric acid (Easy NP )... Trials were sown to Crusader wheat, at 30 and 40 cm row spacing with 6 rates of P as granular MAP or ammoniated phosphoric acid (Easy NP )... Liquid vs. granular fertilisers Trials conducted by NSW DPI and Incitec-Pivot Ltd in 2004 under high yield potential on the Liverpool Plains compared wheat responses between liquid starter fertilisers (Easy NP and DAP-H2SO4) and granular products (DAP and MAP)...

Seed spacing history's full turn.. "When we switched to an airseeder, we decided to use 25-centimetre spacings with the wheels outside the frame," Peter says... "Past research has proven that switching to narrower row spacings will boost crop competition, reduce weed seed-set and lift yields - they are foregone conclusions."..
