Sowing time x stubble management, MRZ Mid North (Mallala), South Australia locations
Aims
  • To maximise yield of new lentil varieties through the identification of optimum sowing dates and
    stubble management strategies to aid in disease management and harvestability.
Key messages
  • Early sown lentils were generally highest yielding, and average 12% higher yield than the late
    sowing date.
  • PBA Blitz and CIPAL0501 showed the least sowing date response in the favourable 2010
    growing season.
  • Retaining barley stubble at 2t/ha was capable of increasing yield and delaying maturity.
  • Stubble retention improved yields at all sowing dates, while standing stubble was most
    important for grain yield at the later sowing date.
