Managing crop growth and water use

Chris Lawson, Victor Sadras (SARDI) and Glenn McDonald (UoA)

Aims:

To manage the crop canopy and conserve the stored soil moisture so that it might be saved for grain-fill, rather than being used to create early crop growth.

Spring water use trial

Colin Hacking, Wes Arnott, Scott Chirnside (SFS), Bruce Wightman, Renick Peries (NRE) Robert White, Robert Edis and Gary Clark (Melb Uni)

Aims:

To identify whether deep ripping and other soil treatments will result in an increase in spring water use by crops and therefore increased yields and improved grain quality.
