DAFWA wheat agronomy project manager Christine Zaicou-Kunesch with Richard Quinlan, of Planfarm, and Woongoondy grower Gerard Rowe at the GRDC-funded RCSN early sowing wheat trial site at Yuna... Ms Shackley said the trials aimed to determine the grain yield and quality responses of a range of slow, mid and fast-maturing winter and spring wheat varieties when sown in mid-April, compared with more conventional WA wheatbelt sowing times of early and late May... "Most varieties trialled had the highest yields when sown in early May, or the yields were not significantly different between mid-April and early May sowings," Ms Shackley said...

The Lower Eyre Peninsula survey showed most paddocks had internal blackleg infection levels below 10% unlikely to suffer a yield or oil content penalty... Current varieties have a number of resistance genes if blackleg overcomes one resistance gene, other resistance genes remain effective and so the crops should not become completely susceptible... Final grain yield after slashing was similar in all varieties (about 0.8 t/ha average), except CB1206 (0.2 t/ha)...
