Euabalong - wheat varietal yield and quality trial locations
Aims

To provide localised data on the yield and quality response of released and near release wheat lines at Nyngan, Tottenham, Euabalong and Rankins Springs.

Key messages

Although there was a very late break to the season, cooler conditions through September and October
maintained good yields. There was a long period during flowering in October where no significant rainfall
fell. This limited yield potential and caused quite variable results. Annuello (at 3.0t/ha) (mid season
maturity), Whistler (at 3.0t/ha) (winter wheat) and Ventura (2.9t/ha) (short season maturity) were the highest
yielding varieties. While the long season varieties (like Rosella and Arrivato) were the lowest yielding
