TRIAL MANAGER: Brendan Kupke, SARDI / University of Adelaide

FUNDER: SA Grain Industry Trust

TIMEFRAME: Two years – 2021-22 and 2022-23

TRIAL OVERVIEW: The Optimum Flowering Period (OFP) for wheat and barley varieties, with different maturity windows, is to be characterised for the Murray Plains region. APSIM modelling will initially determine the OFP using long-term climate data and designated soil types. The model is tested with seasonal weather data and a time of sowing field trial at Palmer, for two years, incorporating wheat and barley varieties with different maturity windows.
