" Increasing yield and reducing risk through early sowing in the Southern Grains Region  - Part 2: National Expansion.. Earlier sowing increases the frequency of planting opportunities, and allows more crop to be sown and flower on time... The experiments will examine;- The optimal phenology to allow early sowing at four locations in the southern grains region- The management required in different environments to optimise harvest index of early sown slow maturing wheats- Quantification of any yield penalty associated with slow maturity achieved through vernalisation compared to photoperiod sensitivityRegional grower groups will be responsible for developing and conducting trials in 2013, 2014 and 2015 that address local barriers to early sowing in conjunction with focus groups of interested growers and advisors, CSIRO and FAR Australia...

Figure 1 Output page of NBudget showing the 6 steps to estimate crop yields for all 6 crops and fertiliser N requirements for bread wheat, durum, barley and canola for the coming season.. Potential grain yields for the other crops were calculated by multiplying the potential wheat yields by constants - 1.05 for durum, 1.33 for barley, 0.50 for canola, 0.64 for chickpea and 0.80 for fababean... To answer the question, we used BOM rainfall data in "NBudget' to simulate cropping of wheat in 2009 and chickpea in 2010, grown under no-till and cultivated systems...
