wide row spacing

Categorised under:

Catalogue: Ground Cover
Growers in the Riverine Plains region of north-east Victoria and southern New South Wales are using local research to tackle local challenges... Nick Poole never wanted to be stuck in a lab, so it is no surprise he has spent most of his 30-year research career in paddocks across the UK, New Zealand and Australia, working with growers to solve challenges as diverse as chemical resistance, water use efficiency and nitrogen strategies... "Some growers use wider row spacing to get through long-term stubble burdens, but this trial identified a yield decline from wide row spacing," Adam says...

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...

Early research on recently released bread and durum wheat varieties suggests some new varieties may have a more stable yield across wider row spacing... The best results are achieved with row spacings of 30cm or more and using +/-2cm accuracy guidance and autosteer... To establish soil nutrient status in systems using wider row spacing a modified approach to soil sampling is suggested...

Increasing row spacing up to 30 centimetres has no effect on wheat yield, when yield potential is less than 3.5 tonnes per hectare... In a dry season, increasing row spacing from 18 to 36 and 54cm resulted in yield penalties in wheat and barley but no difference in water use was recorded with different row spacings... To establish soil nutrient status in systems using wider row spacing a modified approach to soil sampling is suggested...
