Optimising mungbean yield in the northern region - Mungbean Agronomy
Conventional plant breeding and innovative agronomic research in Australia has transformed mungbean from a small opportunistic crop to a highly profitable, broad-scale grain crop in Australia. The aim of this project is to capitalise on the opportunity to improve yield reliability of newer mungbean varieties through optimised agronomic management. This project will be based on a participatory approach to learning with growers and agronomists being integral in the identification and prioritisation of treatments at each trial site, the interpretation of data and adoption of new management practices. The project will also update the mungbean Best Management Practices training course manual and other associated documents.
