Aims:

To quantify the contribution of different sunflower leaves to yield and oil quality by applying 12 leaf defoliation treatments.

Sunflowers are generally considered a minor crop in the northern grains region. However, they play an important role in providing a broadleaf summer crop rotation option. An individual sunflower plant produces… read more

Deep banded phosphorus effect on chickpea root growth

Tim Weaver (CSIRO), Bruce Haigh, Stephen Harden, Graeme Schwenke, Peter Perfrement and Peter Formann (NSW DIP)

Aims:

To study root development under a chickpea crop and quantify root growth due to the addition of P at a depth of 20 cm.

In northern New South Wales (NSW) and southern Queeland (Qld), long-term cropping on dryland farming systems has depleted P from the soil (Bell & Lester 2012). This has created a need to research nutrient replacement … read more

Re-evaluating seed colour change in canola to improve harvest management decisions - Tamworth 2016

Rick Graham, Rob Bambach, Jan Hosking, Stephen Morphett, Michael Dal Santo and Jim Perfrement (NSW DPI)

Aims:

Due to the increased prevalence of hybrid canola varieties, lower plant populations and perceived changes in plant architecture, there has been increased discussion about how best to determine seed colour change (SCC) and therefore windrow timing. Current industry guidelines based on research conducted in the 1970’s and 1980’s recommend that… read more

Aims:

Sowing date is a key driver of yield and variety performance. The optimum sowing time for an individual variety is a balance between having the variety flower too early and being subjected to frost damage, and conversely having it flower too late and experience prolonged heat stress. Both of these factors can have significant negative impacts on… read more
