Selecting a wheat and barley variety for phosphorus efficiency or yield potential – which one is the winner? locations
Aims
  • To Identify sites and to assess under which circumstances (yield potential, fertiliser prices) high rates of P are economical.
  • To identify varieties that have greater PUE in P deficient soils.
Key messages
  • Higher P rates (more than typical replacement P rates) were required on sites with moderate to high PBI values.
  • There were no significant trends in P use efficiency between wheat and barley varieties selected.
  • Variety choice should be made on yield potential and not any potential savings from growing a P efficient variety.
