Results of trials undertaken by Agriculture Western Australia's Crop Variety Testing Group are now available from the Department. The 1999 Crop Variety Testing Trial Results offer variety evaluation trials designed to measure differences between varieties. The trials are also the basis for advice on expected yields of new and established varieties in all parts of WA.
Yield and quality information, where available, is presented for each trial, plus field observations recorded during the growing season.
The 1999 Crop Variety Testing Trial Results is available as a book or on CD-Rom.
