Collaborating with CSIRO, funded by Ag Grow Agronomy, CSIRO and GRDC. This 3-year project is investigating the establishment of canola in response to management factors.
One of the key factors impacting on establishment Ag Grow Agronomy is exploring is press wheels. Modern seeders with trailing press wheels that use them as a depth gauge in canola can have an impact on establishment. We need to show ways we can use these seeders with success.
The objective of our trial is therefore to compare the effect of alternative press wheels and sowing depths on canola establishment.
