Contributor Southern Farming Systems
Trial location(s) Gnarwarre, VIC
Wheat variety demonstration and BYDV trial locations
Aims
  • To assess a number of commercial and near commercial wheat lines for yield and grain quality.
  • To assess the value of an insecticidal spray programme for controlling BYDV.
Key messages

It would appear that the use of an insecticide has increased the yield of the varieties. A two spray programme appears to be better than a one spray programme. The problem is that MacKellar is resistant to BYDV and there should not be any increase in yield due to the insecticide sprays, assuming that the spray was only controlling the aphid population causing BYDV. It is either a trial anomaly or there is some other beneficial effect from the use of the insecticide spray.
