Key messages

Lentils are a viable pulse option for the Southern Mallee, except in dry years on soils where high soil boron, sodicity and salinity are a problem. Digger has consistently been the highest yielding variety tested in the Mallee but the new variety Cassab offers a good alternative to
growers.
