The take home messages from this GRDC funded research are below. Please access the full paper via the link below for methodology, references, acknowledgements and discussion.
Take key messages from the paper include:
- Match optimal flowering period to growing environment to maximise grain yield potential.
- One variety doesn’t fit all; there are no commercially available varieties that are broadly adapted across a wide range of sowing times or growing environments.
- Optimising variety phenology and sowing time combinations achieves grain yield stability across a wide sowing window.
- Probability of sowing opportunities will influence variety choice and sowing time decisions.
