Dry sowing wheat in April can help to optimise farm yields, increase farm area sown and reduce the risks of later season heat shocks across much of WA without significantly affecting frost risk... Less is known about the effects of dry sowing on wheat yields when there are early season soil water deficits... Dr Fletcher found the risk of heat shock fell from 25 to 14 per cent when wheat was sown dry, mainly due to a tighter and earlier flowering window compared to wet sowing of wheat...

Dr James Hunt, pictured, says planting a range of cultivars at their optimal sowing time can improve profitability for wheat growers... Sowing a range of cultivars in their ideal sowing windows will give wheat growers the best chance of balancing the increasing risks of heat and frost damage... Wedgetail, Cutlass, Trojan, Mace 10 April - 15 May "Three years of trials across multiple environments in SA have shown that yields decline at a rate of 28 kg/ha per day once sowing extends past the end of the first week in May," Dr Hunt said...
