This will be included in the next phase of this project... An appropriate response to the achievements of the current project has already been implemented with continued funding by GRDC for a further five years... Assuming average production of wheat, canola and lupins from the period 1993 to 2011 and that information generated as a part of VSAP results in a 1% increase in productivity per year over 20% of the area with a lag of one year, compounded over two years, this is approximately $4.5 million per year increase in productivity...
