Nyngan - 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
  • The extremely late break to the season highlighted maturity differences very clearly. The fast maturing varieties like H45 and H46 yielded highest, while the long season varieties like Rosella, EGA-Wedgetail and  Marombi yielded the lowest.
  • Yield varied from 0.96 -1.9t/ha.
  • The protein levels varied from 12.9% (H45) to 17.1% (Marombi). Protein levels were all high because of the short grain filling period.
