Seed quality, nitrogen, screenings and black point in wheat and barley locations
Aims

To report on seed quality, nitrogen, screenings and black point in wheat and barley.

Key messages
  • Seed quality: Check the germination and vigour of seed harvested in 2000, or other weather damaged seed.
  • Nitrogen: Soil nitrogen levels are likely to be lower in 2001, but will vary depending on summer rainfall, fallow weed control and paddock history.
  • Screenings: Pinched and small grain can result from drought stress and high temperatures, foliar disease or inappropriate input levels such as excessive early nitrogen, late sowing or poor soil water extraction.
  • Black Point: Black point in wheat is now thought to result from enzyme reactions during ripening, brought on by environmental stresses.
