Aims:

  • To evaluate the potential of phosphorus replacement as a method of applying variable rate fertiliser.
  • Compare EM38 and NDVI as guides for nitrogen application and illustrates how simple farmer trials can be used to assess the benefits of variable managment.

Aims:

  • To sow wheat varieties earlier to reduce the possibility of heat shock events during grain fill whilst taking into account the frost risk.
  • To sow more than one variety in the one paddock as a mix to ensure that the whole crop is not susceptible to frost and heat shock at the same time.
