‘Southern irrigated cereal and canola varieties achieving target yields’ 


Irrigated wheat and canola experiments were conducted at Bool Lagoon between 2014 and 2016 as part of the ‘Southern irrigated cereal and canola varieties achieving target yields’ project. The objective was to improve cereal and canola production through identification of varieties and agronomic practices with superior performance under irrigation. 


The experiment site received its lowest rainfall on record in 2014 and highest rainfall on record in 2016 and these extreme rainfall conditions had a strong influence on experiment results. In 2014 there was no significant interaction with grain yield and different nitrogen or fungicide regimes, and in 2016 the very wet conditions resulted in some experiment treatments being abandoned.
