Trials show cost of varieties mismatched with sowing time.. The GRDC Variety Specific Agronomy Project at Narrabri in northern NSW has shown that slower-maturing wheat and barley varieties sown in their appropriate early sowing window tend to yield best.. The results emphasise the importance of sowing the correct variety in the earlier part of the optimum sowing window...

Time of sowing focus needed for faba beans.. Sowing within the April 20 to May 15 window in southern NSW, and preferably aiming for the first half of this window particularly in western areas, was shown to maximise yields in crops that produced six to nine tonnes per hectare dry matter (DM) with harvest indexes of 30 to 35 per cent... "To the contrary, sowing later than the sowing window can expose the slower-maturing crop to moisture and heat stress at the end of the season resulting in shorter plants, lower height of bottom pods, harvest difficulties, reduced biomass; and reduced number of flowering nodes, fewer pods and low yields."..
