Growing break crops in a well-managed way can significantly and consistently boost the yields and profits of subsequent wheat crops in good seasons and reduce overall farming risks... Dr Lawes said an analysis of 30 years of data from across the WA grainbelt using the crop and economic modelling systems APSIM and LUSO indicated there was a 0.6 tonne per hectare average yield benefit in wheat crops grown after a lupin break crop and 0.4t/ha benefit following canola, compared with wheat grown after wheat... "We found the first wheat crop in a continuous wheat sequence could increase costs and depress yields in the second and third year wheat crops and reduce the probability of these subsequent wheat crops making a profit," he said...

Caption: DAFWA research officer Martin Harries says the GRDC-funded Focus Paddock project in WA has identified no adverse wheat productivity impacts of expanded canola plantings at the expense of legumes in crop and pasture sequences... In the northern region, two years of cereals-one year of lupins-one year of canola had an average GM of $280/ha.. Rotations with two years of canola and two years of cereals (W-C-W-C) were popular in the southern agricultural region and had an average GM of $340/ha..
