Wheat and Barley varieties' response to nitrogen 2014 trial report locations
Aims

Compare 6 barley (feed and malt) and 6 wheat (APW and AH) varieties response to increasing nitrogen applications across 5 locations across the wheatbelt. We have only included information for Binnu location. 

Assess responsiveness of new varieties to management and the consequences for grain yield, grain quality and overall agronomic performance.

 

Key messages

Across all sites, barley was more productive than wheat on both wheat and canola stubble. However in the binnu trial wheat yields were significantly higher than barley at all nitrogen treatments except the control.  

Nitrogen is an important component of agronomy of wheat and barley in both canola and wheat rotations. Yields did respond to nitrogen.
