Spring sowing pulse trial locations
Aims

To evaluate the performance of chick peas, faba beans, lupins and field peas under a spring sowing regime. 

Key messages
  • The trial was sown a month too late due to windy conditions not allowing us to get a knockdown herbicide sprayed before sowing. The close proximity to other trials made this process very risky. 
  • For further discussion please see the attached trial report.
