2021 Victorian Crop Sowing Guide

Published: 16 Oct 2020

The Victorian Crop Sowing Guide outlines information on current varieties of the major winter crops grown in Victoria. The publication aims to prompt growers to ask, ‘Am I growing the best variety for my situation?’

The Victorian Crop Sowing Guide is compiled by Agriculture Victoria, with sources of additional information listed in each chapter. Local advisers are also a key resource for information relevant to individual localities. Growers are encouraged to use this publication as a guide for discussion with consultants, advisers and marketing agents.

The sowing guide is published every spring, a timely release to assist growers in making variety choices for the next season. It will be important for growers and advisors to review disease resistance ratings in March 2021 in the cereal and pulse disease guides to ensure they know the current resistance ratings of varieties. The latest 2020 National Variety Trials (NVT) data will also be available early in 2021 via the NVT website, the Long Term Yield Reporting tool and in the NVT Harvest reports.

The Victorian Crop Sowing Guide is a joint investment between the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) and Agriculture Victoria. Thank you to GRDC and all contributors for making this publication available to Victoria.
