Field pea, lentil and chickpea variety x stubble management, Mid North (Pinery) and Yorke Peninsula (Minlaton), South Australia locations
Aims
  • To determine whether sowing inter-row in standing stubbles varying in stubble height will benefit yield of field pea, lentil and chickpea varieties.
Key messages
  • Yields were relatively high at these sites in 2012, particularly given the drier than average growing season. Chickpeas performed particularly well, yielding equal to lentils at Minlaton
    and higher than lentils at Pinery. Yields may have been buoyed by the presence of stubble in all treatments, helping to conserved soil moisture, and the mild (although dry) finish to the season.
