Aims

To compare the performance of a range of pulse varieties and sowing dates in two contrasting soil types in North Central Victoria.

Key messages

Field pea and vetch hay was most economical due to strong hay prices this year. Field peas were the best performing grain crop (Table 1). Early sowing maximised biomass (hay) and grain yield.
