Optimising high rainfall zone cropping for profit in the Western and Southern Regions

This project aims to work with growers, advisers, researchers and the broader grains industry to define the research and development needs in the high rainfall zones of GRDC's Western and Southern Regions.

Experimental sites in various and differing high rainfall areas will be established to measure cereal and canola growth in response to seasonal conditions and management decisions. Field trials and extension outcomes are aiming to understand the yield potential with different combinations of germplasm (Winter versus Spring germplasm) and farming systems inputs required to reduce the yield gap whilst still being profitable; and to also understand the economic risks associated with potentially higher input farming systems.
