Growing mungbeans this year?

Come and watch our panel of experts who will discuss the latest research in mungbean agronomy and how this applies to the coming season.

  • The mungbean yield gap – what’s important?
  • Nematodes – yield impact, regional variation, interaction with diseases such as fusarium wilt, measurement and impact of crop sequence.
  • Soil N impact on N fixation and crop growthSoil water – starting soil water and yield, WUE benchmarks
  • Growing the crop – water use and implications for irrigation/ water demand, the value of early biomass for yield, row spacing and access to soil water, stress impacts on flowering and pod set
  • Windrowing and defoliation strategies
  • Legacy impacts in the farming system – nitrogen, soil water, disease, nematodes and AMF
