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.

Wheat canopy management

Nick Poole (FAR, NZ) and the Mid-North High Rainfall Site

Aims:

  • To improve the nitrogen and water use efficiency of wheat by manipulating canopy size and structure using post sowing applications of nitrogen.
  • To maintain yield and quality, while reducing the risks associated with excess early crop growth.
  • To compare and investigate the value of different optical crop sensors.read more
