Caption 1: CSIRO's GRDC-funded early sowing of wheat trial site at Wickepin last year shows a range of plant development rates dependent on time of sowing and use of long, mid or short maturing variety... But the risks can be reduced by using suitable varieties and tools such as modern no-tillage techniques, summer fallow management and more cost-effective insecticides and fungicides to protect against pests and diseases... This year's NVT trial data includes more detail about wheat variety performance across several years in a range of environments...

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...
