Incorporating canola as a companion plant did not increase grain yield at all sites in 2019. Plant growth regulator used to manipulate canopy structure increased grain yield. Further work is required to understand the effects on plant density, row arrangements, and companion species on canopy structure and grain yield production.
Treatment | Plant density (plants/m2) | Plant growth regulator
Paired row = every second row removed after plant emergence

The research undertaken as part of the GRDC-funded Southern Pulse Agronomy project is made possible by the significant contributions of growers through both trial cooperation and the support of the GRDC and the authors would like to thank them for their continued support. The continued assistance in trial management from SARDI Agronomy groups at Clare, Minnipa, Struan and Port Lincoln is gratefully acknowledged and appreciated. The authors would also like to gratefully acknowledge SARDI Plant Pathology and Soil Biology groups for their scientific input and assistance, as well as advisors and grower groups involved in the project.
