The wheat variety guide summarises performance characteristics of commercially available wheats which have undergone testing in the National Variety Trials Project (NVT), breeding organisations crop variety testing and Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) variety specific agronomy projects.
This information includes variety summaries, agronomic, disease and herbicide tolerance characteristics and medium to long-term yield performance. A review of regional performance in 2010 is followed by a comprehensive summary of 2010 variety time of sowing experiments and observed flowering dates.
By combining agronomy research outcomes with other related wheat research this document provides current information to assist with variety choice and management for 2011.
