Harvest is crunch time for each year's crop, and always a good opportunity to evocatively capture on film the season's end-game.. Harvester at night in fields with moon shining through clouds... In the areas, growers suggest that early sowing, good winter rains and newer wheat varieties, such as LongReach ScoutA and Mace, have all contributed to the production achieved, despite receiving only 40mm of spring rain...

" Goondiwindi GRDC Grains Research Update Day 1 - Tuesday 4 th March Time Topic Speaker (s) 10:00 AM James Clark (Chair Northern Welcome Panel GRDC) 10:10 AM General plenary (Supported by North West Local Land Services) 10:10 AM 10:40 AM.. Overall, both models are acceptable for modelling soil evaporation over a range of soils and seasons provided accurate soil physical properties and starting water states are known... Overall, populations increased five times compared to before planting the summer crops, but remained below 250/kg soil (Figure 4)...

Canola is often windrowed to ensure all pods are mature at harvest... In summary, windrowing too early can result in lower yields and oil contents and too late will lead to shattering losses... Canola is sold into a deregulated domestic market and the responsibility of finding an acceptable price and arranging a buyer rests with the grower...

My aim is not to provide a recipe for planting summer crops in north-western NSW, but to provide some insight and tools to assist in the decision making process... Table 1 shows that when planting between October and the 1 st of January, there is an 80% chance of receiving at least 110-120mm of in-crop rainfall this calculation does not consider the impact of rainfall timing on crop demand... Figure 3 supports the back of the envelope calculation suggesting the 150mm of starting water is the minimum required to achieve a 3t yield 5 years in 10 while if you have 200mm of stored water the probabilities improve to 6-8 years in 10...

Risk can be reduced by setting profitable crop yield targets, calculating the amount of water needed to achieve these yield targets and assessing that against available stored soil moisture and the probability of receiving additional moisture through in-crop rainfall... Research conducted by Dr Whish and funded by CSIRO and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), reinforces the benefits of setting profitable crop yield targets, calculating the amount of water needed to achieve these yield targets and assessing that against available stored soil moisture and the potential for in-crop rainfall... The total water requirement is 260mm...

A GRDC-commissioned report identifies great potential to increase sorghum production in lower-rainfall areas as well as in wetter districts.. Their sorghum, on average, produces 15 to 16 kilograms of grain per hectare per millimetre of moisture (stored soil water plus in-crop rainfall minus 110mm, according to the northern formula)...

Take home message Optimising maize yield under irrigation requires the correct combination of crop genetics, crop management and environmental factors... The results suggest that stress at any time during the growing period will reduce ET and will reduce yield... Maize ET varies daily during the growing season and with location...
