Barley varieties and time of sowing - Kalkee locations
Aims

To compare the performance of new and existing barley varieties and the influence of sowing time
on crop performance.

Key messages
  • Fathom, Spartacus CL and Rosalind have performed consistently well at most sites in 2016.
  • Compass performed poorly when sown early, with substantial lodging and head loss. When sown later, it was one of the top performers with little to no lodging observed.
  • Fathom, Hindmarsh, La Trobe, Spartacus CL, Rosalind and Compass are consistently the top yielding varieties over a range of different seasonal finishes in the Mallee and Wimmera.
