Do current wheat varieties differ in their optimum seeding rate and nitrogen strategy? (Jeremy Curry, DAFWA). The aim of this trial was to determine the response of current varieties to increases in seed rate and N rate in a low rainfall system.
The impact of seeding rate on quality and yield of malting barley (Jeremy Curry, DAFWA). The aim of this project was to determine if the response of current varieties to increases in seed rate and N rate in high rainfall environments apply to lower rainfall environments and to determine the optimum management strategy for new malting cultivars. Canola retaining seed, 2016 (Mark Seymour, DAFWA).
The aim of this trial was to determine if retaining canola seed leads to reduced yield, oil and financial return.
Low fertiliser inputs for canola in low rainfall areas, 2016 (Mark Seymour, DAFWA). The aim of this trail was to evaluate the response of canola to low fertiliser inputs. Love them legumes, 2016 (Mark Seymour). There appears to be renewed interest from growers and the agricultural community in legume break crops to complement canola and cereals in the rotation.
