Hart Field Site Group

Hart is South Australia’s premier agronomic field site, managed by farmers to provide independent information and skills to the industry.

Since 1982, the Hart Field-Site Group have been conducting cropping trials at Hart in the Mid-North of South Australia. These trials are focussed on being relevant to the broad-acre farming community and are conducted independently. The substantial trials site at Hart is available for inspection throughout each growing season at Hart Crop Walks and Field Days and for student/farming group tours by appointment.

Field pea - time of sowing and disease

Larn McMurray, Jenny Davidson, Mick Lines, Mark Bennie and John Nairn (SARDI)

Aims:

To identify best sowing time and fungicides strategies in new pea varieties to maximise yields and to improve recommendations from the ‘Blackspot Manager’ disease risk prediction model in different regions by incorporating data from replicated trials.

Field peas - maximising grain yield through sowing times

Larn McMurray, Jenny Davidson, Michael Lines, John Nairn and Peter Maynard (SARDI)

Aims:

  • To identify best sowing time and fungicide strategies for maximum grain yields in field peas.
  • To improve the reliability of the SARDI blackspot disease prediction model and validate the blackspot predictive model ‘Blackspot Manager’ in SA by incorporating data from replicated trials.
