Maps detailing actual and achievable yield data have been compiled by the CSIRO and will be made accessible through a Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) funded project... The study suggests that farmers in the northern region could achieve average yields of 2.9 t/ha," Dr Hochman said... Dr Hochman said the research found that the northern region's yields were 5.3% lower than relative yields in the southern region and 8.9% lower than in the western region, suggesting there is significant scope to boost yields in the north through better application of current technologies and best practice...

CSIRO researcher Dr Zvi Hochman has explored the potential for northern grain growers to increase wheat yields by 1.2 tonnes per hectare using best practice embodying current technologies and varieties suited to individual farming systems... Speaking at the GRDC Grains Research Update in Coonabarabran, New South Wales, Dr Hochman said the key to achieving such a yield lift was using best practice to help achieve water-limited yields, instead of actual yields... To help bridge the yield gap, Dr Hochman advocates tailoring best practice to individual farming systems, with a focus on using the "best-adapted crop varieties and best cropping and land management practices for a given environment"...

Store soil water to help close the yield gap.. Mr Fritsch says to optimise crop yields for 2016, it is important to pay attention to crop variety choice and rotations, input spending, control of weeds, diseases and pests, soil health, stubble cover and fallow management... Mr Fritsch says in some lower-rainfall areas, a high frequency of lower-yielding crops with small margins may be less profitable to grow than a well-planned rotation that includes some crops grown on long fallow during the change between summer and winter cropping...
