Tottenham - 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. The faster maturing varieties (like H46 and Ellison) performed much better than the long season varieties (like Rosella and EGA-Wedgetail).
  • Yield varied from 2.9 - 4.4t/ha.
  • The protein levels were generally above 12.5%, except for H45 and H46. High protein values were a result of small grain size and a shortened grain filling period. Very high values (15.5 -16.1%) were seen for long season varieties like Petrie, Rosella, Marombi and EGA-Wedgetail.
