Cropping systems locations

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

Key messages
  • The disc and the early sown no-till tillage systems produced the highest grain yields, 1.41t/ha and 1.36t/ha respectively.
  • The early sown no-till system had the lowest protein and the highest screenings.
  • The disc tillage treatment had the least available soil nitrogen in autumn.
