Practices which promote successful early sowing opportunities in south western NSW

This project is supported by the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, through funding from Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.

Conducted at 2 sites (Beelbangera and Hillston), these trials are looking at innovative ways of getting early sown crops up and out of the ground using polymers that attract moisture to the seed.

Treatments include 2 depths of sowing (3cm and 10cm), gypsum as granules next to the seed, various seed and liquid inject treatments looking at attracting moisture to seed, and a humectant and wetter crystal. It also uses 2 different varieties with different coleoptile lengths.
