Crop sequencing project

Laura Goward (CSIRO) , Felicity Turner (MFMG) and Amanda Pearce (SARDI)

Aims:

To answer three key questions:

  1. Can a break crop be as profitable as a cereal?
  2. Are crop sequences including break crops more profitable than continuous wheat?
  3. What effects do break crops have on soil nitrogen availability?
