Trial location(s) Balldale, NSW
Barley maximum yield experiment locations
Aims

To assess the level of input required to maximise yields of barley grown after wheat.

Key messages
  • Barley responded to inputs of nitrogen (N), and fungicide in 2006 and 2007.
  • 20- 40 kg N was reqired to maximise yield.
  • Fungicide response was independent of N application.
