Row spacing

Catalogue: Ground Cover
Ben Cripps of Ogilvie is widening his canola row spacings to help reduce risks and cut costs - a strategy that is being further examined with GRDC funding... The Cripps family at Ogilvie is part of a new movement in the northern agricultural region pushing canola row spacings wider to reduce risks and cut costs... Ben says 2014 trials on their property found that using low seeding rates of 1.5 kilograms/ha at 60cm spacing produced marginally higher yields - about 80kg/ha - than using seeding rates of 3kg/ha at 30cm spacings...

NSW Department of Primary Industries Northern Cropping Systems Manager at the Tamworth Agricultural Institute Dr Guy McMullen said recent results from southern Australian trials supported the northern data and urged growers to consider their row spacing decisions both from a yield perspective as well as within the context of the wider farming system... Trial work has consistently demonstrated that crops sown in wide rows are less competitive with weeds, costing yield and enabling weed survivors to set seed and propogate... It is well recognised that stubble cover plays a key role in conservation farming practices by maximising water capture, infiltration and storage, and the adoption of wider row spacing has enabled growers to sow into higher levels of retrained stubble...

Callum keeps the wheels turning on seeding innovation.. Grower Callum Wesley, of Southern Cross, is developing and trialling a new seeding system for lower-rainfall areas - called the Wesley Wheel - that harvests moisture in inter-row furrows... At Southern Cross, Callum says it was a challenging season, where daily rain events in June, July and August did not exceed 5.4mm - reducing water-harvesting potential...
