Dr Hunt says using a variety such as Whistler to bring sowing dates forward would allow growers to take advantage of early planting opportunities across a broad window from late March to early May and its stable flowering date would reduce frost risk...

CSIRO Agriculture's Dr James Hunt says APSIM modeling indicates that - even with WA's Mediterranean climate - sowing opportunities in this State occur often enough so that adoption of longer maturing varieties for earlier planting has potential to increase whole farm wheat yields, particularly in medium and high rainfall zones... The trials will be repeated this year and the aim is to assess whether long maturing varieties sown early in the year can yield as well as - or better than - short maturing varieties (such as Mace ) when these are sown in their optimal window in WA environments... Dr Hunt says using a variety such as Whistler to bring sowing dates forward would allow growers to take advantage of early planting opportunities across a broad window from late March to early May and its stable flowering date would reduce frost risk...
