Key messages
  • Rosalind demonstrated a clear yield advantage in this trial and at 2.5 t/ha it was almost 0.5 t/ha ahead of the second ranked group average of Mundah, La Trobe, Litmus, Hindmarsh and Compass.
  • The growing season at Ballidu was underscored by two large rainfall events that bracketed an extended dry period during July and a dry finish with 4mm recorded for September and October accompanied by increasing heat stress with multiple days above 30oC.
  • This year was most suited to the earlier maturing varieties which were better able to utilise available moisture.
  • Grower decisions on variety replacement or retention should not be based solely on 2015 NVT data, but should include consideration of relative variety performance across locations, long term yield predictions and local farmer experience.
