South Australian Crop Sowing Guide

Published: 23 Oct 2023

The variety trial results presented in this guide are sourced from the NVT program and the National Vetch Breeding Program.

NVT provide independent information on varieties for growers. The aim of NVT is to document a ranking of new and widely adopted varieties according to grain yield and to provide grain quality information relevant to delivery standards. NVT are also used by pathologists to determine disease resistance ratings used in this guide.

Conducted to a set of predetermined protocols, variety trials are sown and managed as close as possible to local best practice such as sowing time, fertiliser application, weed management and pest and disease control, including fungicide application. NVT are not designed to grow varieties to their maximum yield potential.

It is acknowledged that an ongoing project of this type would not be possible without the cooperation of growers prepared to contribute sites and who often assist with the management of trials on their property.
