A project testing new wheat varieties from a number of sources under a range of agronomic treatments in the Western Region was carried out over a period of four years... Results from the project have reinforced earlier findings that the greatest yield improvements are likely to result from the combination of new varieties with appropriate management practices rather than from either source alone... The project team made a substantial contribution to this process by providing agronomic information at the time of release of the variety, assistance with Farmnotes, balanced promotion at field days and Updates, and an understanding of the impact of the variety's short coleoptile on its response to seed rate...

Thanks must go to everyone who has submitted papers and presented at the 2004 Agribusiness Crop Updates... There was little graminaceous plant material available on which aphids could survive, so none were recorded in the wheat blocks at either site until the end of August, by which time most plants had reached GS 41-47 (booting)...
