Durum management locations
  • To measure the effect of crop defoliation, ryegrass, sowing rate and nitrogen timing on the grain yield and quality, of new durum varieties against current industry standards.
  • To compare the effect of growth regulants on durum grain yield and quality.
Key messages
  • The presence of ryegrass reduced grain yields by 25%.
  • Reduced sowing rates did not affect the grain yield or quality of new or standard durum varieties.
  • A split application of nitrogen at GS31 and GS37 produced a significantly higher yield, 1.3t/ha.
  • Growth regulants did not improve grain yield.
