Acknowledgments

This project is funded by SAGIT and is linked to a component of the GRDC Pulse Agronomy Project evaluating the practice of crop topping in pulse crops. Field research trials are conducted thanks to the invaluable efforts of SARDI’s Crop Evaluation research teams based at Clare, Pt Lincoln and Struan, and seed quality image data by Jamus Stonar (SARDI). We also thank the cooperative growers who allow these research trials to be conducted on their properties.
