long maturing variety

Catalogue: GRDC Media
Early sowing of mid and longer maturing wheats can boost whole farm profits.. 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... 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...

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...

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...
