The authors of this paper note in the conclusion: “Time of sowing experiments have demonstrated benefits from matching sowing date to variety phenology. Optimal start of flowering time provides a target range for flowering to start within to minimise frost/heat/water stress and maximise yield for a particular environment. Once the development triggers/phenology for a variety are understood an optimal sowing date can be derived to match the optimal flowering time”.   Please access the full paper via the link below if this research interests you.
