Oat seed available from near Allora. May be some Petrel wheat also.

Probably a similar demographic to those who support farmers markets in the cities and regional towns. Who knows? Maybe it's wishful thinking

Imagine if farmers who farmed more sustainably, got paid more for what they produced...

Ever wondered why saved seed from your own farm grows differently? Plant growth-promoting bacteria (PGPB) get carried in seed. Wow. New technology used to study tomato seeds but wonder if it applies to broadacre crops too?

Maybe we are on the right track with our Phosphorus strategies for farmers... More work to be done but it seems that water soluble P with seed at planting is not the form or timing for lifting cropping produductivity.

Paddock survey shows that nearly 50% of growers miss out on 500 kg/ha in yield potential. Yield gap analysis in mungbeans shows: fallow > double crop due to 💦 narrow rows <40 and risk factors are starting nitrate N < 65kg/ha, nematodes > 3 & high temps at 🌾

Lots to consider for many scenarios but rainfall capture still highest priority for me. I'd be worried about fining up soil and sealing off w Kelly chains unless plenty of residue.

I wonder if in a dry year, the better shading of narrower rows reduces evaporative losses and leaves more for crop use? Would be interesting to have moisture probes during season... Row direction?

Excellent trial. May have missed it but what was the yield difference 50 vs 100cm?

Here's an idea worth considering for any farmers frustrated by the ill-informed continual attacks an agriculture in Australia. .
