Rankin Springs - 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. Mid to short season varieties performed well, namely EGA-Gregory (at 3.0t/ha), Ventura (at 3.0t/ha) and Strzelecki (3.0t/ha).
  • Yield varied from 1.8 - 3.0t/ha.
  • The protein levels were all below the Prime Hard receival standards.
