Aims

To investigate the sustainability and profitability of cropping rotations and tillage methods on Merriwagga soils.

Key messages

Continuous cropping has remained the most profitable rotation since the trial began, especially continuous wheat. This system however will not last, and will be less profitable in the next few years, as suggested by the GM variations in figures 6 and 7. For continuous cropping to be sustainable, a break crop is needed to keep the system working.
