Has Hindmarsh barley run its race? Barley time of sowing locations
Aims

To determine the performance of new and current barley varieties in the Wimmera and Mallee

Key messages

The yield advantages of earlier sowing may not be achieved if volunteer plants cannot be controlled. Compass showed good adaptability at each sowing time both at Horsham and Watchupga East. Earlier sown barley plots at both sites were limited by nitrogen in 2013.
