Aims:

 

This project will demonstrate to growers the most profitable tyned seeding system for improved cereal crop establishment on medium to heavy textured soils in the eastern wheatbelt. This will be achieved by establishing a trial site to assess a range of furrow closing options (4) and down force pressures (2) over two years to account… read more

Aims:

The aim of this project is for the Corrigin Farm Improvement Group (CFIG) to compare the profitability of a range of crop rotations, including chemical fallowing, on a medium textured, loamy soil type east of Corrigin. Gross returns are assessed both on an annual basis and on an accumulative multi-year basis.

Aims:

In these trials Corrigin Farm Improvement Group aimed to test the benefits of growing crops on chemical fallowed soil. The trials specifically compared which crop species were most profitable under a chemical fallowing regime. In season 2013 barley was most profitable and in 2014 albus lupins were the most profitable crop grown on chemical fallo… read more

Aims:

The trial was designed to investigate a range of techniques that may improve crop establishment and performance on non wetting sandy soils. The techniques tested included mouldboard ploughing, winged knife points, and H2O Lure. The trial also compared the second year affect of mouldboard ploughing to first year response..

Aims:

A trial west of Corrigin has shed some new light on what can happen to crop production in the second year after mouldboard ploughing of non wetting grey sandy soils. Non wetting soils pose a significant challenge to growing crops in many parts of the wheatbelt and crops grown on these soils can suffer poor seedling establishment, poor weed contr… read more
