Aims:

With limited barley varieties suited to the high rainfall zone, it is important that there are agronomy packages available that suit each variety to maximise production and profitability. This project is helping to build a strong database of knowledge for targeted variety management, which will give advisors and growers confidence to try new var… read more

Aims:

To assess the potential of non-commercial later maturing canola lines for the HRZ of southern Australia.

Winter canola types have shown a yield advantage over spring types across a number of seasons in the HRZ. Winter types can be around 4 weeks later to flower and harvest that commercial spring types. Spacial modelling studies indicat… read more
