SAGIT Profitable Pulses Trial

Year 3 trial plan – 2020-21

Trial plan

This year’s SAGIT Profitable Pulses Trial is replicating the third year of the pulse variety trial, this time on a trial site south-east of Palmer. Four replicated trials evaluating the leading commercial varieties of canola, chickpea, field pea, lentils and lupin have been sown. This year, two sowing times have been trialled – May 7 and May 26. 

In addition, the focus of the management trials in 2020 is to demonstrate the productivity of alternative broadleaved pastures and forage crops. Biomass cuts are being taken throughout the growing season to create growth curves for each species.
