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...

The benefits improve crop health and crop competitive ability against weeds and the effectiveness of pre-emergent herbicides... When used as a post-emergent product, little of the herbicide gets to the roots and the control of established weeds is often very poor... benefits arise when the weed is prevented from setting seed as there are no increases to the seedbank and, as a consequence, fewer weeds in the future...

" 2.2 Lupin Agronomic Improvement in the Western Region - Enhancing the profitability of the lupin/wheat rotation DAW00099 Start Date: 01/07/2004.. The project has provided guidance on which techniques are best used under various circumstances and environments and how to balance the trade-offs... Results from the project showed that to compensate for the reduced yield potential due to delaying sowing by a week, annual ryegrass densities would need to be cut by at least 60 plants/m and wild radish densities by at least 2 plants/m in low rainfall areas...

Research is being undertaken to investigate a range of agronomic (i.e. water and nutrient use) and weed management issues for several crops (faba beans, wheat and barley) grown on wide-rows in southern Australia... Weed management opportunities under wide-rows In 2006, a field experiment was undertaken on Roseworthy Campus to evaluate inter- and intra-row herbicide application strategies for the control of ARG in faba beans grown on wide-rows (54 cm)... In the absence of weed control, faba beans grown on wide-rows were unable to compete with ARG (189 plants/m2) and produced very little grain yield (156 kg/ha) (Table 1)...

Although row spacing is a relatively simple thing to change, the effect on the whole farm system can be complex and can influence yield, time of sowing, machinery, herbicide, and seed and fertiliser costs, as well as the types of crops sown... Doubling the row spacing from 18 to 36cm resulted in a two per cent loss in yield in barley and a five per cent loss in wheat... Wider row spacing increases the concentration of nutrients per metre of row if the rate per hectare is maintained...

Growers urged to count the yield cost of wide rows.. Winter cereal growers in the northern region are being urged to carefully assess the yield cost of their row spacing decisions... Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) supported trials by NSW DPI researchers at the Tamworth Agricultural Institute and the Condobolin Agricultural Research & Advisory Station in 2009 and 2010 found that yield loss from 30 cm to 40 cm row spacings averaged approximately 0.3 tonnes/hectare but varied from less than 0.2 up to 0.8 t/ha...
