Chickpeas provide an excellent break crop and gross margin opportunity for growers, and many are now realizing the importance of break crops in a farming system with the current expense of nitrogen... Operationally chickpeas fit very well into many farming systems, often being able to be sown before cereals and generally harvested after... Harvesting on time should be a priority in such a high valued crop...

Navy beans are grown for the canning (baked beans) and edible dry bean package trade... The visual appearance of the final product is vital... The small whitish eggs are individually laid on the upper canopy leaf surface during flowering, and most of the economic damage is caused by feeding on flowers and pods as they develop...

Research trials show early harvesting (or cutting) can significantly reduce aflatoxin levels and increase gross returns... A number of factors influence the decision on when to cut a peanut crop, including: maturity of the crop peg strength and general crop health; if the crop is highly diseased the grower is advised to cut early to reduce harvest losses weather outlook; hasten or delay cutting if wet weather is imminent risk attitude of grower soil type differences may cause variations in maturity within a block machinery logistics; if a small acreage can be cut or harvested this will spread harvesting over a longer period... DEEDI trials conducted over the trial period of three seasons consistently showed that in years, or situations, where there is a high-aflatoxin risk, early crop cutting can help to minimise aflatoxin levels and increase gross returns...

EARLY PLANNING KEY TO DIRECT HEADING Many grain growers fear that direct heading canola is risky and that high shattering losses are inevitable... Yield losses due to shattering while direct heading are likely to be lower than yield losses associated with windrowing a crop too early, such as a week or more before 40 to 60 per cent of seeds on the main stem have changed colour... Direct heading is not suited to paddocks with significant variations in soil type and/or topography - factors that affect plant-available water and plant maturity...

direct heading allows for maximum yields if canola is harvested on time and the header is set-up correctly to avoid shattering... yield losses due to shattering while direct heading are likely to be lower than yield losses associated with windrowing a crop too early, such as a week or more before 40 to 60 per cent of seeds on the main stem have changed colour...
