Perenjori trials - fallow locations
Aims

To determine if the use of a fallow cropping system was better and more profitable than a continuous wheat cropping system in the North East Agricultural Region (NEAR).

Key messages
  • The yield of the trial was not collected by the weigh trailer, but I felt the wheat on the fallow trial was at least 20-30% higher yielding than the wheat on wheat.
  • The wheat on the fallow trial was higher in stature, looked a lot healthier and larger grain size.
  • Looking overall at yield wheat on wheat would have been 0.9 to 1 t/ha and the fallow would have been approx. 1.2 to 1.3 t/ha.
