higher crop yield

Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
Biomass production by wheat crops can often be high, but yields are well below potential... In combination with the high rainfall, this leads to a low WUE for grain production... Wheat and canola are the two major crops in the HRZ of WA. Wheat crops in the area have considerable potential driven by the higher rainfall and longer growing season relative to traditional cropping areas...

Biomass production by wheat crops can often be high, but yields are well below potential... Wheat and canola are the two major crops in the HRZ of WA. Wheat crops in the area have considerable potential driven by the higher rainfall and longer growing season relative to traditional cropping areas... We aim to quantify the impact of temporal variation in N supply on canopy development, crop water use, development of grain yield, and WUE of wheat crops in the HRZ. Cropping in the HRZ has been dominated by cereals...

Research shows benefits of dry sowing wheat early.. Crop modelling work shows that dry sowing wheat in April can maximise whole-farm yields in Western Australia and minimise the likelihood of late-season heat stress, without significantly affecting frost risk... "Using data from 54 seasons at seven sites across the WA grainbelt, the modelling work shows farm-level yield benefits of up to 35 per cent - or up to 0.5 to 1.2 tonnes per hectare - from dry seeding wheat before autumn rains, compared with wet sowing wheat after autumn rains," he said...
