Wheat and barley irrigated and dryland variety trials locations
Aims

To compare the performance of potential wheat and barley varieties with existing varieties commonly
grown in SNSW under local conditions.

Key messages
  • Growing conditions in 2016 were very wet and mild, with rainfall from May to September one of
    the wettest on record.
  • Growing season rainfall was well above average with 525mm recorded for Rankins Springs and
    532mm for Hillston. There was some waterlogging at the Rankins Springs site due to flooding, which impacted on yield.
  • Durum wheat varieties did not perform as well in 2016 at both Rankins Springs and Hillston. 
  • Lodging was observed at the dryland site at Rankins Springs, with barley varieties the worst for
    lodging. Compared to 2015, lodging at the irrigated site at Hillston was not as widespread with only a few varieties having lodging scores greater than 5.
  • Given the 2016 season, which strongly favoured the performance of longer season varieties, it is important to look at variety performance of this trial, alongside long term NVT results.
