2018 Wheat variety sowing guide for Western Australia

The 2018 Wheat variety sowing guide for Western Australia provides information to support growers with decisions on variety selection and management. This publication contains a summary on the yield performance of varieties in the NVT, disease resistance ratings and agronomic information. A quick reference for 21 common and recently released varieties is also available as fact sheets.

When deciding whether to implement a new variety into your farming system, it’s important to determine whether the change will provide an advantage. A new variety should:

  • have better or equal yield and disease traits,
  • provide diversity or risk mitigation and
  • suit the current market requirements.

Reviewing available trial information (NVT or DPIRD trials) is recommended. This variety guide provides available information on disease, agronomy, yield and quality characteristics to assist you with variety choice and management.

Since the last variety guide, there have been eight new premium wheat varieties released.
