Cropping systems locations

To compare the performance of 3 seeding systems and 2 nutrition strategies. This is a rotation trial to assess the longer term effects of seeding systems and higher fertiliser input systems.

Key messages
  • The no-till sowing system had significantly higher grain yields at Hart in 2011.
  • Higher fertiliser nutrition significantly increased protein, but not grain yield.
  • The strategic treatment produced the most dry matter and shoot nitrogen.
  • Mice damage significantly reduced crop emergence in the disc treatment.
