Contributor Hart Field Site Group
Trial location(s) Booleroo, SA
Early sown winter wheats locations
Aims

To investigate the potential yield increases available with early sown winter wheats.

Key messages
  • The highest yielding spring wheat was Scepter sown on the 4th of May and 16th of March at 1.98 t/ha and 1.82 t/ha, respectively.
  • The winter wheat varieties yielded between 0.82 – 1.33 t/ha, with no variety consistently outperforming another.
  • 2017 conditions at Booleroo were unfavourable for winter wheats, further data across seasons and locations will be continued in 2018 and 2019.
