Comparison of durum varieties locations
Aims

To compare the performance of new durum varieties and lines against current industry standards.

Key messages
  • The average grain yield for all durum varieties was 4.08 t/ha and the highest yielding variety was Yawa, closely followed by Tjilkuri.
  • Grain protein levels were low however, test weight values were high and no varieties exceeded 5% screenings at Hart in 2016.
