- Match optimal flowering period to local growing environment to maximise grain yield potential
- Timing of sowing opportunities based on varietal selection/availability
Figure 2. Yield response variance from each year’s trial mean yield ploted realative to flowering date. This chart has then been super imposed over the frost and heat stress risk chart for the region. Each dot represent the average yield of a particuar variety at a particular sowing date. The orange dotted line represents the each years average trial yeild, Table 1 lists the value of the orange line for each year of data.
