Key messages Canola produced similar levels of dry matter for grazing on wide or narrow rows. Wide row spacing increased paddock scale yield by 25 per cent compared to narrow row. Grazing reduced grain yield of canola on either spacing, … Continue reading
Altering the timing of clethodim application and using angled nozzles can improve annual ryegrass control in canola
By Heather Cosgriff and Georgina Moloney, SFS Key messages: Annual Ryegrass (AGR) resistance was not an issue in the trial as it was a bare paddock sown to AGR. Poorly timed application of clethodim reduced the chemical’s efficacy. Improving the … Continue reading

Can we reduce nitrogen inputs for wheat sown onto high-input crop stubbles and still achieve high yields?
By Heather Cosgriff (SFS) Key messages: Soil nitrogen availability was very high prior to sowing, 321.6kg/ha available Incorporating poppy stubble led to high potentially mineralisable nitrogen levels There was no yield or protein response to additional urea applications Trojan generally … Continue reading
