Frost risk Pt 2: Site elevation
Host: Tony Crowley | Date: 27 Mar 2019
In this two-part podcast Matt Gardner form AMPS Research discusses sowing strategies, site elevation and crop monitoring tools and how these variables can help manager frost risk without unnecessarily sacrificing yield.
At Matt’s early sowing trial site near Premer on the NSW Liverpool Plains the paddock has a 50-metre variation in elevation.
In part two of this podcast Matt moves to the top end of the slope and compares the difference in crop performance and frost risk and discusses what that means for a sowing strategy.
And grain grower Tom Simpson who has been involved in the trials tells of his experience on a broad acre scale.
