Crop sequence trial demonstrates break crop profits.. The effect of rotation is clear - the canola/wheat/wheat rotation (left) had 31 kilograms of nitrogen per hectare applied, while the vetch/canola/wheat rotation (right) had 9kg of N/ha applied... Rotations in the Mallee that have a break crop for two consecutive years are proving more profitable than rotations with only one break crop...

Crop diversity lifts profitability.. Pastures, pulses and oilseed crops not only provide solutions for disease, weed and nitrogen issues in cereal programs - they can also boost your bottom line... This 'break-crop effect' often extends to the second wheat crop (but rarely to a third except under dry conditions), reinforcing the need to consider the economics of break crops across the whole sequence, not in a single year...

Craig Thompson bought a WEEDit precision sprayer seven years ago and says it has become a crucial tool for summer weed control... A stark drop in growing-season rainfall in WA's northern wheatbelt means growers have to get crop roots much deeper into the soil profile to access moisture.. Craig says that wheat-on-wheat, with the aid of Clearfield wheats, has simplified the system and allowed him to concentrate on the single most important element - holding on to every drop of rain that falls...

Wheat plant densities could be reduced to around 75 plants/m 2as long as stem densities reach sufficient numbers for the paddocks potential yield... The paper will focus on the 2011 Kellerberrin trial results similar results were achieved at all sites... Treatments were chosen to produce variable canopy growth utilising plant density and nitrogen timing to highlight what effect crop canopy has on yield and quality...

Crop diversity lifts profitability.. For example, a GRDC-funded CSIRO project modelled the profitability of different crop sequences in Western Australia and found that the most profitable wheat crop followed a managed pasture... Log in or register to leave a comment...
