Adapting to climate change with crop sequences locations
Aims

To recommend options to improve;
• soil nutrients and groundcover, and 
• reduce disease levels and chemical use.

Key messages
  • Well managed continuous wheat produced a yield of 3.6 t/ha in 2011, a decile 5 year.
  • Oats produced up to 9 t dry matter (DM)/ha as a hay crop.
