Seperating the wheat from the chaff: wheat varieties for 2013 locations
Aims

To evaluate the performance of new and current wheat varieties in the Mallee and Wimmera.

Key messages

Scout and Mace, both Hard varieties, are now suitable Yitpi replacements for the Wimmera and Mallee. Mace needs to be managed for stripe rust; there was a 0.6t/ha yield reduction due to stripe rust at Horsham. New varieties Phantom and Corack also performed well across all trials.
