Break crop performance at Mount Cooper, Minnipa and Penong locations
Aims

To compare current released varieties at two locations on Eyre Peninsula, plus a demonstration at Penong.

Key messages
  • Two Clearfield varieties, Pioneer 44Y84 and Pioneer 45Y82, exceeded 2.5 t/ha at Mt Cooper.
  • There were no standout varieties in the Triazine Tolerant (TT) and Conventional canola varieties at both Minnipa and Mt Cooper.
  • Juncea canola and Biodiesel canola produced lower yields than in the past compared to traditional napus canola due to above average rainfall year.
  • No significant difference between the newly released pea lines at Mount Cooper.
  • Break crops were successfully grown at Penong in 2010.
