Trial details

Researcher(s) Sarah Noack and Peter Hooper (Hart Field Site Group)
Year(s) 2013 - 2014
Contributor Hart Field Site Group
Trial location(s) Site 5, Hart, SA
Wheat in the crop rotation locations
Aims

To investigate where wheat performs best in a crop rotaion.

Key messages
  • Previous crop (legume, oaten hay, cereal or fallow) had no effect on wheat grain yield in 2014.
  • Grain protein values were lower following a cereal where there was less available soil N at the start of the season.
