SOUTHERN NOODLE WHEAT TRIALS SHOW PROMISE
8th October 2015 – Mingenew Irwin Group (MIG) Heavy Land Tour
The Heavy Land Tour was the last field event for MIG this season. Darren Yewers was the lucky winner of a tonne of Impress CL Plus for sowing in 2016. Darren farms between Mingenew and Morawa and is currently growing wheats Corack, Mace, Westonia and Calingiri in rotation with lupins, canola, field peas and chemical fallow.
Darren is looking forward to including Impress CL Plus within his cropping program to extend his cereal phase, particularly in paddocks where brome and barley grass are present. Darren is pleased with Impress CL Plus’ improved yield and yellow spot resistance, over other commercially available Clearfield® Plus wheats. He also sees Impress’ large grain size as a big advantage for his area in helping to maintain grain quality in tight seasonal finishes.
11th August 2015 – Mullewa Dryland Farming Initiative Field Day
Congratulations Paul Freeman! Paul was the winner of one tonne of Zen noodle wheat at the Mullewa Dryland Farming Initiative Spring Field Day. Paul is very pleased with the 2015 season and is currently growing canola, lupins, chickpeas and Mace, Calingiri and King Rock wheats and enjoys having varietal flexibility to spread risk. Fallow is also an integral part of Paul’s farming system allowing him to run sheep and spray-top weeds to reduce pressures in the following crop.
Paul sows Calingiri wheat on his red loam fallow country due to its mid-long season maturity and is keen to bulk-up Zen with plans to replace Calingiri given its significant yield and disease improvements.
12th August 2015 – Northern Agri Group Spring Field Day
Don, Paula and son Leigh Nairn were the door prize winners of one tonne of Zen wheat at the Northern Agri Group Field day this year.
Leigh says, “Our wheat program at Binnu consists of hard varieties Cobra, Mace and Emu Rock. We are looking forward to growing Zen, its mid-long season maturity will give us the flexibility to sow earlier on clean canola stubbles.”
“Zen will also provide noodle premium opportunities for areas of the farm where we have difficulty achieving H1 protein levels, particularly on our sandplain country.”
“Zen has performed well in our local variety trials on a range of soil types and look forward to seeing how it performs on farm next year.”
