Crop agronomy remains an integral component of successful cropping enterprises. Good crop agronomy needs to consider varietal choice, crop nutrition, weed, disease and insect management not only on an individual crop basis but needs to also account for rotational factors. Agronomic practices need to be well informed by rigorous, scientific independent research.
NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) trials research and extension reported in this book are primarily conducted across the central and northern grains regions of NSW addressing a wide range of production issues in cereal, pulse and oilseed crops.
This book is a collection of short papers; the third in a series, aimed at improving the awareness and accessibility of the results of the work which NSW DPI staff are involved in across the central and northern grains region. In many cases some of the papers will prompt more detailed questions and we would encourage you to discuss these with your local District Agronomist or the authors of the paper.
