Lentil sowing time x stubble management, Mid North (Pinery), South Australia 2010-2012 locations
Aims
  • To maximise yield of new lentil varieties through the identification of optimum sowing dates and stubble management strategies.
Key messages
  • Average grain yields across all varieties in retained stubble treatments (Slashed and Standing) were equal or greater than Removed stubble treatments in all years of testing.
  • There was generally a greater yield response from the Standing treatment than the Slashed treatment.
  •  The yield response from stubble retention was generally the greatest at the Late sowing date.
