Cereal variety and nitrogen responses to grazing

Take home messages Grazed crops showed no effects from grazing in 2016 – an excellent season producing high early biomass. Crops recovered and yielded very well. Trojan and LRPB Arrow were the best dual purpose wheat varieties. Fathom, Spartacus and Rosalind were the best dual purpose barley varieties. Background A mixed farming system that comprises […]

Canola varieties

Take home messages Canola offers great versatility for weed control and where residual herbicides are problematic, despite its inherent production risk. NuSeed Diamond (CONV), 44Y90 (CLF), Stingray (TT) and GT-50 (RR) achieved the highest yields in their respective herbicide groups at Manangatang. 44Y90, NuSeed Diamond, InVigor® R 5520P (RR) and Bayer 3000TR (RT) achieved the […]

Barley varieties and time of sowing

Take home messages Fathom, Spartacus CL and Rosalind have performed consistently well at most sites in 2016. Compass performed poorly when sown early, with substantial lodging and head loss. When sown later, it was one of the top performers with little to no lodging observed. Fathom, Hindmarsh, La Trobe, Spartacus CL, Rosalind and Compass are […]

Wheat varieties and the influence of sowing time

Take home messages Trojan and Beckom were the highest yielding in the Mallee and Trojan, Cosmick and Scepter topped the yields in the Wimmera. There was a 0.5t/ha advantage in having earlier sowing varieties in the Wimmera (sown on 18 May), over later sowing Cosmick, Corack and Mace have performed consistently well over the last […]

Versatile oats of the Wimmera Mallee

Take home messages At Warmur and Kalkee, Bannister was the highest yielding milling oat and Brusher the highest yielding hay oat variety in 2016 – an excellent season. Application of fungicides to oats did not create hay or yield benefits in the Wimmera in 2016. Choice of oat variety and management should be made according […]

Pulses in the Mallee 2016

Take home messages Pulses, particularly lentils and chickpeas, were very profitable at Mallee trial sites in 2016. When choosing new varieties or changing agronomic treatments it is important to look at long-term information rather than individual seasons. Varieties like PBA Jumbo2 lentils have performed well across a range of seasons, indicating yield stability. New faba […]

Disease in pulse crops

Take home messages A new isolate of ascochyta blight has virulence on previously resistant chickpea varieties and can cause complete crop loss in susceptible varieties. Botrytis grey mould was responsible for losses of up to 1.5t/ha ($650-$975/ha) in susceptible lentil varieties in 2016. Applying a preventative fungicide early and prior to canopy closure can minimise […]
