The 2015 Wheat variety guide for Western Australia has been designed as a one stop shop to help WA’s wheat growers to make the right variety decision for their cropping enterprise. The guide will again provide independent information and advice on variety, agronomy, disease and herbicide tolerance characteristics, medium to long–term yield performance as well as time of flowering information.
This year’s variety guide focuses on the top 10 varieties grown in WA over the past season. It will also look at the varieties that are important to certain grain growing regions as well as information about recently released varieties.
It is interesting to see the fast rate of adoption of Mace which accounted for approximately 59% of the area sown to wheat in the 2014/15 season. Other popular varieties included; Calingiri (10.8%), Wyalkatchem (5%), Yitpi (5%) and Magenta (3.8%) which round out the top five varieties sown in 2014.
