Yuna trial results - fallow locations
Aims

To investigate low risk, best bet strategies for the low rainfall cropping zone.

Key messages
  • Statistical analysis was not possible on the trial, but the wheat following spray fallow treatment was by far the most profitable over the two years as well as the least risky.
  • If this trial were to be repeated results will vary given different seasons and different soil types.
