Break crop economics for Kwinana East RCSN (low-rainfall) Zone locations
Aims

To consider the activities and practices of those farmers with a long term track record of achieving above average results.

Key messages

From the sequences gathered from the survey group, 70% of the hectares planted were to cereals, with the balance to break phases. This appears to be a little higher than the average at around 60% to cereals. All growers surveyed noted flexibility as important to each rotation. Meaning longer sequences were often subject to change. Rotational changes are predominantly driven by weeds burdens and seeding conditions/seasonal outlook.
