GRDC is driving research to deliver innovative new crop traits and information for growers to make successful sowing decisions
Cereals, 28 Jul 2021
Long coleoptile wheats are being regionally tested to provide agronomic and farming systems guidelines for growers to use to improve wheat production under a changing climate and increased enterprise size.

Experimental trials have shown the potential for spring-sown barley to yield more than 10 tonnes per hectare in Tasmania. This is the finding of a national trial program spanning five states as part of the GRDC-invested hyper-yielding crops (HYC) project, led by Field Applied Research (FAR) Australia.
